This photograph was executed at Bucharest, in 1869 (Photographed by Carol Szathmari, Bucharest.) At the arrival of spring, it is the custom in Roumania, Servia, and Bulgaria for a group of Gypsy children, quite alone, or under the guidance of a woman or an older girl, themselves only halfclad or actually naked, and having their heads and loins wreathed about with green branches of wild plants, to go from one house to another, before each of which they dance and sing a certain song.
