Children's Christmas rite in Klichev

The children's Christmas rite Kury (Hens) was performed in the city of Klichev. Members of the exemplary folk ensemble Kupalochka perform the rite every year on 13 January. A festive procession features girls aged 8-14 clad in national costumes.

The traditional Christmas rite was revived in Klichev in 2011. In 2013, the children's Christmas rite Kury was added to the list of intangible cultural heritage of Belarus.
