If you happen to be in Bulgaria in the first months of the year, you have the unique opportunity to enjoy one of the most popular spring traditions in the country - the Kukeri ritual.

I will never forget the first time I saw the Kukeri in Plovdiv.

In the USA, they fly 3 jet fighters over the super bowl and it is not as impressive.
