Students at St. Andrews University participate in the traditional Raisin Monday celebration. The tradition dates back to the early days of the university when new students would give senior students a pound of raisins in gratitude for their help in adapting to university life, in exchange for a receipt written in Latin. Failure to produce such a receipt could result in a dousing in the local fountain. Nowadays the raisins have been replaced with a bottle of wine, and the dousing with foam.

Monday’s Pictures in the News begins with a whimsical image from Scotland, where students from St. Andrews University participate in the traditional Raisin Monday celebrations. The tradition dates to the early days of the university, when new students would give seniors a pound of raisins in gratitude for their help in adapting to university life; in return for the raisins, the seniors would give them a receipt, written in Latin. Failure to produce such a receipt could result in a dousing in the local fountain. Nowadays the raisins have been replaced with a bottle of wine, and the dousing is with foam, not water.

In Egypt, security forces fired tear gas and clashed with several thousand protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square in a third day of violence that has left at least two dozen people dead.

Elsewhere, Barneys New York teams with Lady Gaga on a promotion that includes something called the Gaga Spider Balloon at the corner of 23rd and Broadway; a student militant wearing a mask depicting former Philippine President Gloria Arroyo holds onto a mock prison cell while scuffling with police  in Manila; and mourners attend an interfaith prayer meeting to condemn the slaying of a nun in India.

From deep space, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft offers an up-close look at Saturn. Add stops in Hong Kong, Jakarta, and Germany to round out the report.
