BULGARIAN MARTENITSA


March 1. is a day of the rich Bulgarian tradition, and wishes for health, love and a good harvest. This is the time when Bulgarians exchsnge amulets - the so called bulgarian Martenitsa and tell each other "Chestita Baba Marta"(Happy Granny March). The red and white woven threads are not just meaningless decoration, but symbolise the wish for a good harvest and good health. They are the heralds of the coming of spring. Martenitsa is given to children, friends and people whom one feels close to. They are worn on clothing, or around the wrist or neck, until the wearer sees a stork or swallow, or a blossoming tree, and then removes the Martenitsa and hangs it on a blossoming tree.
