Only in the villages of Kosti and Brodilovo in Strandzha, this holiday manifests itself in its most authentic form – “white kuker”, kukeri without a mask, with an open face. According to local people and folklore specialists, the basic elements of the ritual come close to the ancient magical ritualistic actions embodying the spring revival and fertilization of nature, as well as the expulsion of the “evil forces” gathered during the gloomy winter period.
