Robust ringers do not eat, drink or shove their pockets during their march from morning to evening

v
Bell-masked people wearing bells around their waists. They are active during carnival days or carnival periods. The bell-ringers are terrifyingly human figures, surrounded by sheepskins, surrounded by large bells, with horrible masks on their heads. During their march, which lasts from morning until late evening, they must not eat, drink, smoke, swear, talk on their cell phones, throw at people or put their hands in their pockets. The bell-ringers frantically jump, howl, ring their bells, and winch with banging sticks.
Throughout history, fearsome bell-ringers have not been the primary activity of fighting invaders or enemies, but of touring villages and ringing, dancing, throwing ashes (women under skirts) and other rituals of livestock magic, to disperse evil spirits and encourage fertility.

Throughout history, many heroic deeds have been attributed to bell ringers. However, their biggest undertaking is that they have managed to preserve themselves to this day and to be included in the UNESCO list of cultural heritage. Then, blowing horns announces carnival follies and bell patrols. Each bell group has its own route and schedule. Once they leave, they don’t stop.
They are on their feet from morning until late evening during the carnival days. They are constantly on the move and sweating from heavy march from village to village. They dance under crab gear weighing up to fifteen pounds. They can take a break when their leader blows their horn into a lunch break. Otherwise, they may not eat, drink, or squat all day or lean against the wall. The bellboy should abide by all their rules and should not in any way embarrass his or her family. They are disciplined as an army, and the one who breaks the rules is punished with a ban on appearing. Wherever they pass, they cause joy and tears of joy. When the villagers see the bell ringers, they know the winter is over and they look forward to the sunny days and spring. The people of the bell tower are welcomed as heroes: they bring drinks and various dishes, pat them on the shoulder, rush to meet them. It is a great honor for every home in front of which the bellmen stop and unlock their wheels. It is especially a great honor to be a member of a bell-ringing family. Unlike masks who are intoxicated, crazy about having fun and having fun, bell-ringers have a code of conduct and a serious respect for tradition. They must be neat, clean trimmed and shaved. They may not wear any jewelry on their hands or body. The bell-heads on their heads wear lavish pointed caps decorated with usually multicolored paper roses. The bellmen are served hearty heavy dishes. The bells and whistles when eating, do not choose much on the table. They eat, potatoes, flummery and dried meat in all combinations. They say they have such an appetite that what they eat can fit in a tank. As a rule, the bell meal ends with a cake and wine.
