Martenitsa Day--Bulgaria:  For more than 1,000 years, we in Bulgaria have celebrated our national holiday on March 1st called ‘Baba Marta,’ Grandma March. ‘Mart’ in Bulgarian is the name for the month of March. This holiday symbolizes the coming of spring.    Bulgarians wear a small special ornament made of red and white yarn on this day, called ‘Martenitsa.’ We wear it until March 22, and some people wear it until they see a stork or the first buds of a tree.
