Честита Баба Марта...about Baba Marta and the Bulgarians:)

It is MY favourite Bulgarian holiday/ tradition!:-)) Every first of March (and then for the rest of the month too) we celebrate "Baba Marta" (literally "Granny March") - by giving our beloved ones (friends, colleagues, neigbours, etc...) white+red-threat-made "marteniza". This little present (in form of armband, necklace or little dolls ) symbolises the coming spring and makes people smile...
