Many people today are still familiar with the rituals of St Lucy's Day, Nativity plays and the minstrel singing tradition of "regölés”, but how many still remember the observance of St Barbara's Day, the St Nicholas Day procession on 6 December, Christmas carolling, and the customs of distributing the Communion bread or carrying bundles of sticks, the blessing of St John's Day, the Feast of t...he Holy Innocents on 28 December (known under a variety of other names), or the various folk customs associated with New Year's Eve? Anyone who has not heard of these customs will now get a chance to learn about them from the Tura Tradition-Keepers, who will bound through the highlights of this highly eventful month is just an hour.
