Bulgarian Christmas Traditions – TransGlobe International

After Supper Koleduvane

Koleduvane is a Christmas eve routine, which happens at midnight. After it ends, we know that Christmas is here and Jesus Christ has been born. In Koleduvane, only young kids and unmarried males take part, called the Koledari. They gather in your house of the male leading the group, worn conventional outfit. Once they’ve congregated, they go from home to house singing Christmas carols. The rituals they perform all goal to bring the household they visit longevity, health, success, and luck. They generally have a tune for each family member. One for the head of the home, one for his partner. There are tunes for the kids, for the unmarried ladies and kids, etc. There are even songs committed to the home’s animals– cows, goats, sheep, etc.!

Survakane Routine

To round off the festive season, our final custom of the year is survakane on New Year’s Day. It is essentially kids beating adults on the back with elaborately decorated sticks (lightly, of course!). This, together with incantations, are brings best of luck to the adult in the New Year. Though the routine differs from area to area, survakane is popular throughout Bulgaria. The stick, named a survachka or survaknitsa, is really a cornel branch decorated with yarn, wool, dried fruit, popcorn, beads and other small items.As you can
