Faces of the New Year

Crihana Veche, Moldova. The boys dressed like goats are the heralds of the New Year. They are teamed in special congregations made exclusively of boys, spending some time together, severing relations with the village, in an initiatory ritual. They are singing and dancing all the day from one household to another, being given nuts, sweet bread, and even money by the landlords.
