Singing in the New Year

One of the most endearing Greek / Kytherian traditions is "singing in the New Year". Children go around the island in large groups, or in smaller groups (like these two young girls outside Astikon in Potamos), or as individuals.

They carry a triangle with them, ask the person or shop owner whether they can sing in Xmas / the New Year / Epithany, and after singing their carol, they are rewarded with money, which is put into a money box, which they carry with them.
