Regölés in the village of Kiscsősz, Hungary. Regölés is the Hungarian word for the ancient custom of carolling done around Christmas and New Year’s. The custom has died out in many areas. In the tiny village of Kiscsősz in Western Hungary’s Veszprém County, the Élő Forrás Hagyományőrző Egyesület (Living Source Tradition Preserving Association) leads efforts to revive, preserve and re-introduce folk traditions. On December 27th a group of local people went carolling to the homes of the village residents, then carollers from the city of Debrecen in Eastern Hungary joined them at the celebration and party that followed.
