Juhász Katalin writes about Regölés; a Hungarian custom with ancient roots in myth, orthodox, catholicism and pagan seasonal fertility rites. For a week, starting on Dec 26th, the regös goes from house to house, greeting the people for the holidays and New Year with song, verse and pagentry. In Hungary, the custom, for the most part, survives in people's memories, but it is still practiced as a custom in more remote parts of Transylvania.
