This picture taken Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013 shows a villager dressed up as a beggar with a baby, mocking Greece's crippled economy, during the carnival in Macedonia's southwestern village of Vevcani. Said to date from pagan times 1,400 years ago, the Vevcani carnival, with its colorful floats and masked revelers, has grown in popularity over the last decade and attracts thousands of visitors for the celebrations on St. Vasilij Day to welcome in the New Year according to the Julian calendar.
