Martenitsa - Bulgarian Festival of Baba Marta 2015
(1 March 2015, all across Bulgaria)
Each year on first of March, Bulgarians celebrate the coming of the spring with exchange of red and white braided tassels, which also might include small dolls called Martenitsa. The name of the event comes from the Bulgarian word for March /mart/, or as a legend has it, an old lady named Baba Marta (Grandma Marta).
The braided red and white tassels are given and received in order to please the angry Baba Marta, so that winter will be over soon and the spring will come. The colours in these tassels are symbolic - white symbolizing the purity of the melting snow, and the red - the setting of the sun, which becomes more intense.
Once given a Martenitsa, one should wear it (usually around the wrist) until behold a stalk, which is a symbol of the coming spring, and then one have to tie the tassel to the nearest tree for good luck.
