The priest performing the rituals wake up early in the morning at arond 2-3 am and, starts the ritual until the time to start the mask dances. The same person who are in the rituals also have to perform the mask dances due to the shortages of people in the village, which is so challenging because sometimes hardly get to sleep an hour. On top of that to wake up early in the morning in such cold place is sickening.
