Surva - Winter Masquerade Rituals

Surva - The Winter Masquerade Rituals
The name of the holiday is Surva. Bulgarian linguists like Iliev link this tradition to one branch of Zoroastrianism – Zurvanism. It is known for being more strictly monotheistic than traditional Zoroastrianism (Abadi, 2005). May be this sound coincidentally but in Bactria there was a god of the eternity, destiny and universe whose name was Zurvan.
