Kukeri

Yu-huuu! My first stamped Bulgarian card. ๐Ÿ˜€ It came from Aneta who lives in Sofia, and it reached me after the very impressive 2 weeks of traveling. ๐Ÿ˜€

The card pictures a traditional Bulgarian ritual. Men dress up in scary costumes, put some huge (and very heavy) bells on their belts, and dance to scare the evil spirits away. The costumes are slightly different in the different regions, but one thing always remains unchanged – it’s always very noisy and very colorful. ๐Ÿ˜€
