A lo largo de los años, La Tomatina se ha convertido en un evento anual que atrae a miles de personas de todo el mundo. Por lo tanto, la afirmación de que La Tomatina se celebró por primera vez después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial es verdadera.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement contradicts the information provided. It states that "La Tomatina" has always had rules and organization, which implies that it has been organized and regulated since its inception.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there is no evidence or historical record to suggest that Francisco Franco, the dictator of Spain, recognized the cultural value of La Tomatina, a tomato-throwing festival. La Tomatina originated in the town of Buñol in the 1940s and gained popularity over the years, but there is no documented acknowledgment or support from Franco regarding its cultural significance.
