Romanian traditions

Drawing by Irina Dragoste

There is a very strong folk tradition in Romania. This is a combination of pagan and religious rituals. On these great events people dress in their national costumes. Here follows four texts about St Nicholas, Christmas, New Year and Epiphany. The photos are from our celebrations at school.
