Photographer's Note

Koledari (Bulgarian : коледари) is the Bulgarian term for Christmas carolers. In Bulgaria, carolers (called koledari or survakari) traditionally start their rounds at midnight on Christmas Eve. They visit the houses of their relatives, neighbours and other people in the village. Koledari are usually boys. Each caroler carries a cornel stick called survachka, surovachka, or survaknitsa, with which each one of them pats the backs of their parents, grandparents, and friends, thereby wishing them health, wealth and happiness.
I took this picture 2 years ago in the little bulgarian village Bojentzi at Christmas Day. Bojenci is located a few kilometres from Veliko Tarnovo. It changes face during the 18th century, date of the Bulgarian rebirth, where the houses adopt the authentic architectural style which was preserved until our days.
