A centuries-old tradition

A centuries-old tradition. 

On March 1st, every year, we Bulgarians give to our relatives and friends one Martenitsa. 

It is made of white and red thread and is presented with the wish for a long life and health. 

The martenitsa is removed either on the spring equinox or when you see a stork that is the harbinger of spring. 

Ties on a fruit tree with faith for a successful year. 

And this tree in Sofia is always littered with martenitsi. They are placed by students from a neighboring school!

    • I must admit – I have not watched football since 1985, when Stoichkov played at CSKA. Then I trained in the same complex, but fencing. Accidentally I met him, but I do not make a good impression. I’m not talking about his game, but as an athlete’s behavior. In 1985, in the locker room, ugly scenes were made and both teams – CSKA and Leski were punished. One of the bullies were Stoichkov. Then the ugly scenes moved onto the pitch and I, then a CSKA fan, stopped watching football.
