janmashtami is the celebration of krishna’s birth. when krishna was a child, he was mischievous, and one of my favorite stories is how he would steal butter from a mutka (clay pot) that was suspended from the ceiling.

in india, on krishna’s birthday, they celebrate this favorite story by suspending clay pots with milk and butter and men pile on top of each other in these amazing human towers to break the pot.

have a great weekend!
