Koledari (Bulgarian: коледари; from common Slavic Koleda, "Christmas") is the Bulgarian term for Christmas carolers. In Bulgaria, carolers (called koledari or survakari) traditionally start their rounds at midnight on Christmas Eve. They visit the houses of their relatives, neighbours and other people in the village. Koledari are usually boys. Each caroler carries a cornel stick called survachka or surovachka, with which each one of them pats the backs of their parents, grandparents, and friends, thereby wishing them health, wealth and happiness.
