One of the oldest traditions of this festival is making of a straw doll, dressed in old women clothing, decorated with colorful ribbons & laces that is later put on a wooden pyre to torch symbolizing farewell to the winter, and all old ill luck. In this festival, a key ingredient is the making of pancakes along with the festive dances where everyone holds each others hands in a circle and moves around the fire.
