Martenitsa

Честита Баба Марта!
Happy March!


 

Martenitsi are worn from 1 March until the wearer first sees a blossoming tree or until 22 March. Usually, you give them to friends and relatives wishing them health. If you see someone with a Martenitsa in March they are either Bulgarian (or Romanian) or have a Bulgarian (or Romanian) friend or relative. The name of the holiday 

Baba Marta (Martisor - Martishor in Romanian) means "Grandma March" in Bulgarian and the wearing of Martenitsi is a tradition related to welcoming the spring, which in Bulgaria begins in March. Before 22 March you have to tie the Martenitsa to a branch of a blossoming tree and make a wish.
