Mitaartut

Ida.....
Today is Epiphany ... The school closed at 12.00 ... Students had been made up and dressed out. When it was dark, the children visited all the houses ... People must guess the names of the children ... Afterwards the children get candy or cakes ... In the evening, the adults will walk around in the village and visit the houses... Some times we are very shocked they can be very disguised dressed up with dead birds blood from seals, big bones and their faces coloured in black ... In greenlandic this old tradition is called "Mitaartut" ...
