Buckets of water have been thrown over women in Hungary, as part of an unusual annual ritual.
The Paloc community of Holloko were performing a rehearsal of the Easter water pouring ceremony.
Traditionally men and boys pour buckets of water on women and girls, or dunk them in watering troughs.
The men recite a poem to the women before the pouring, asking for their permission.
