What traditions do we have?

On a christian holiday named Saint Andrew which is celebrated on 13th of december,boys steal girls' gates to get their attention because she on the next morning needs to go searching for whom stole her gate. Also,on that day girls do some "magic",they put their mirror and comb under their pillow while sleeping to dream their future man. On Christmas (7th of January) we sing carrols to others about the birth of Jesus and that's how we spread the "good news" as how it was done years ago. Moreover,usually we go singing with our handmade instruments which have a specific sound.
