New Year’s Eve in Romania

Another folk tradition is of the „Plugusorul”, whom appear in all villages and even the most cosmopolitan cities during the period between Christmas and New Year’s day. Nobody is quite certain how the practice originated, but it is an amusing, living legend.

Traditionally costumed characters crack whips as loud as cannons, play symphonies on ancient percussion instruments accompanied by accordions in the streets and in courtyards. The whole intent seems to be making lots of sound to scare away evil ghosts of the past year, to bring good luck and hope into the new year.

Like many Romanian myths, the Plugusorul have retained their mystery over thousands of years.
