In the settlement of Kali Vrysi, at the end of the consecration ceremony, the Babugeras gather outside the church, disguised as animals and wearing five large shepherd’s bells. With their noisy presence they give a completely special tone to the whole scene. Roaming in groups or individually, the Babugeras, in the streets and alleys of the village, hunt those they meet with cheerful teasing, both on the day of Epiphany and the day after Saint John. They give this present also on January 8, at the climax of the three-day events with the satirical wedding reenactment, with the participation in the joy and feast of the whole village and the visitors, who on this day flock to Kali Vrysi from Drama, but also others regions.
