martenitsa

In certain parts of the Balkan (Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova) there is a custom associated with the first day of March.

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 .
