Tradition

Bulgarian men perform the traditional “Horo” dance in the icy winter waters of the Tundzha river in the town of Kalofer, as part of Epiphany Day celebrations on Wednesday, despite the Covid-19 restrictions in the country. As a tradition, an Eastern Orthodox priest throws a cross in the river and it is believed that the one who retreives it will be healthy throughout the year as well as all those who dance in the icy waters.     —AFP PHOTO
