Martenitsa tree.    The tradition is one to wear a martenica until one sees a stork, or a tree with new leaves, and hang it on the tree, so one's luck hold during the whole year.      The red - the color of blood - represents life; and white, the color of a white dove - represents peace.

The first of March is a celebrated day in Bulgaria, symbolising the arrival of Spring. Bulgarians exchange coloured threads (Martenitsa) to be worn until a blossoming tree or stork is seen. The Martenitsa are then hung from the branches.

The ''Martenitsa" is a small piece of adornment, made of white and red yarn and worn from March 1 until around the end of March (or the first time an individual sees a stork or budding tree) It is one of the biggest symbols that everybody wears each year
