Photographer's Note

During the 6th, 7th and 8th of January, people from all over Greece gather in Kastoria to celebrate
"Ragoutsaria". This is a tradition that dates back many years. During the celebration people wear costumes, gather in groups (called "bouloukia"), dance to the music and drink until morning. In older times people who participated,used to go from house to house (anonymously) and ask various things from the homeowners. In return they would help keep evil spirits away from that family.
