Vasilica is a centuries-old Macedonian holiday that commemorates both, the feast day of St. Basil the Great and the New Year’s Day according to the Julian calendar.
For the past 1,400 years, during this holiday, the village of Vevcani, in Macedonia holds the vibrant Vevcani Carnival — the most famous village festivals in the Balkans. People from all over Macedonia and the region come to Vevcani wearing festive costumes and masks and dance throughout the two-day event.
