In 1954, "Lassie" made its television debut. The series followed the adventures of the titular long-haired, sable-and-white Collie who saved her human companions from various perils each week. The long-running show entrenched the fictional canine into the hearts of viewers, who had already been introduced to Lassie via books and film. Find out how the herding dog's adoption rate spiked after Lassie was first introduced on the screen.

Yassai-Hossai is a traditional fire festival and held in Osaka, Japan on December 14 every year. The festival is founded on a fact that fisherman helped their god "Ebisu" who was drifted on Iwatsuta Shrine and they warmed Ebisu by burning of 108 pieces of fire wood bundles. The most impressive scene in this festival is that men wearing white clothing run across the fire cheering "Yassai, Hossai".
