Bulgarian, Calendar, March

“Martenitsi” are red and white coloured wristbands, or figurines, that symbolise health and happiness. They are given away to friends and family. People are supposed to take off their martenitsi when they see the first signs that spring has already come - a blooming tree or a stork. When the martenitsa is taken off some tie it to a tree - one that they’d like to be especially fruitful.

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.
