The article gives an overview of the current customs and masking in the ethnic group of Bessermens at talsipühad (old name for Christmas). The author discusses the changes that have taken place in masking traditions as well as the importance of rituals in today’s village community. Attention is focused on mythological images of talsi spirits, restrictions related to space and time, preferences during holidays, peculiarities of masking, ritual cuisine and etiquette. In recent years the traditional customs and their elements have started to take root in today’s holiday culture; yet, a parallel development of some processes can be observed here: modern culture actively influences the archaic elements and their evolution.
