Do you want to know how it was? Let’s see what John and Ana tell us about it.
Ana: When I was little my grandmother taught me that between Christmas and New Year you have to carve a short piece of wood into the shape of a goat head, which you decorate it then with crepe paper or colored decorations that imitate the animal’s skin.
John: Really? That’s really not that complicated. What can you do then with the costume?
Ana: You wear it and together with others dressed the same you do the goat dance.
Ana: You, John? What tradition do you have?
John: Since I was little I dressed as a bear, although I found it barbaric to do so. It is not exactly pleasant to wear the fur of a such big animal on your head and shoulders. To be honest, along the rattle of drums and song of the whistles I learned the dance of the bears. I also played the role of a bear cub, but from now on I have the role of a sturdier bear. With swinging steps while hitting strongly with the soles in the snow, I growl like a bear and help myself with a bludgeon stick.
Ana: Awesome John! Next year we change roles, you’ll be the goat and I will try to be the bear.
Ion: You don’t really now what you want, Ana!
Ana: Then we go with “Plugușorul” and “Sorcova”.
