Strange Folk Winter Holiday

1

This folk holiday looks rather strange even to many Russians. And we cannot say for sure what is happening on these photos ourselves. But these people seem to have fun being dressed like this.

  1. And at the end of the week- long festival of Gratitude, a pubescent young man was publicly garroted and his body slipped into a nearby bog thus ensuring the village of prosperity and a bountiful harvest for the next year.

  2. It’s not a slavic tradition. It’t a ancient romanian tradition and the region must be Bassarabia (Moldova) or North Bucovina – Ucraina.

  3. As usualfor this site, someone forgot to clearly write that photos are from Ukraine. Ukraine is European independent state, older and more ancient that Asiatic state called Russia.
