Martenitsa, red and white tasselled strings, traditionally tied around the wrist in Bulgaria on 1 March, Baba Marta (Grandmother March day) in Bulgaria; white symbolises snow/death and red, blood/life, and thus the martenitsa suggests the passing of winter and arrival of spring; martenitsa are traditionally worn until a stork, swallow, budding tree or another sign of spring is sighted.

At work today many of our coworkers presented us with the traditional martenitsa, the red and white strings .

Bulgarians may wear the martenitsa (мартеница) – an adornment made of white and red yarn and worn on the wrist or pinned on the clothes – from 1 March until the end of the month. Alternatively, one can take off the martenitsa earlier if one sees a stork (considered a harbinger of spring). One can then tie the martenitsa to the blossoming branch of a tree. Family-members and friends in Bulgaria customarily exchange martenitsas, which they regard as symbols of health and longevity
