Bele Poklade

Poklade is the Serbian name of the last day on which it’s allowed to eat meat and milk products before spring fasting (40 days before Easter) Great festivites are made on this day, and young men dress up in masks and go through the village, while villagers  give them meat, cakes and eggs (which were very valued gifts in the last century in Serbian villages), and later jumped over fire. The point of these celebrations is the whorshipment of spring and driving away the evil spirits. It’s rarely practiced today, and these pictures are from 2011 from village Lozovik where young boys and girls with the help of their teachers decided to revive this custom which has roots deep in the pagan times.
