Gigantic carnival masks are on display after having been used by the villagers at the yearly celebrations of St. Knut’s Day on the 13 January.
The celebration is an old tradition, but no one really knows its origins. Some believe it started with the Walloons coming to the area, while others think it was already an established tradition by then.
It started with people dressing up in simple, yet “strange” attire, in order to walk around the village knocking on people’s doors. It was supposed to be a bit of a secret who was hiding behind the costume. Still today, there is a lot of secrecy about the preparations when the gigantic masks are being built.
