It's Time For My Favorite Holiday Once Again – Happy March

Happy March, friends!

Today is one of my favorite Bulgarian holidays called “Baba Marta”. I have written about it before, check out my post called Baba Marta Day if you want to learn more about this tradition.

Basically, on this day people exchange small adornments made of red and white yarn called “martenitsi”. They could be cute bracelets or small dolls representing a boy and a girl. We wear them every day until the spring comes. When we see the first migratory birds, we tie our “martenitsi” to a blooming tree.

The “martenitsa” in the photo represent a couple wearing Bulgarian folklore costumes.  I got it many years ago, but I just love it so much that I decided to keep it and use it as a decoration during March.

Do you have a favorite holiday, custom or tradition?

  1. In our country we have been modernized, we no longer have traditional holidays.
    What does ‘Baba’ mean in Bulgarian because in Kiswahili, the national language among East African countries means ‘father.’
