NEW YEAR’S CAROLING: OTEPANJE

In Srednja vas, Češnjica and Jereka

The Bohinj villages of Stara Fužina, Studor, Srednja vas, Češnjica and Jereka have preserved the custom of otepanje, that is of masked young lads making their rounds in the days preceding New Year’s Eve. The masks and characters are different in every village, but the scenario is the same; they go from door to door to wish people a Happy New Year and collect gifts: sausages, eggs, beverages, money.
