Masked Devils, Buso Carnival in the Hungarian town of Mohács

A traditional part of the Busó celebration in Mohács, Hungary, is the busós, a frightening character clad in a wooly coat. The end-of-winter carnival, which came to the southern Hungary town with Croats, also features the burning of a coffin that symbolizes winter.

The origins of the Busójárás Carnival in Mohács are pagan. During the six day pre-Lent festival, locals wearing sheepskin costumes parade and dance in the streets to celebrate the end of winter. The carnival ends with a symbolic ritual called ‘The Burial of Farsang” in which a coffin is lit symbolizing the burial of all bad things that have happened throughout the year.
