Carnivals
Name: Xanthi's Carnival
Location: Xanthi
Description: In Xanthi, during Carnival, people celebrate the revival of the old custom of Tzaros or Tzarous (female). According to local tradition, Tzaros or Tzarous was a human effigy, placed on top of a pile of holm-oak brush-wood. On the last Sunday of the Carnival, it is burnt in the open, in a square or on a hill, so that they would not have fleas during summer. This custom was brought by refugees from Samakov in Eastern Thrace and is re-enacted each year by the inhabitants of the Samakov village, near the bridge over the River Kosynthos at Xanthi. The word Tzaros comes from the particular noise of burning wood (the sizzling sound). Immediately, after a fantastic fireworks demonstration follows.
