It is an ancient Traditional Feast in Bulgaria in 1st of March people to give each other Martenitsas. The tradition said that the Martenitsa which was given to you by somebody else gives you a lot of health and happiness. So on this day everybody gives to his relatives and friends Martenitsa. The most typical Martenitsa is called "Pijo and Penda".
The classic colors of the Martenitsa are Red and White. Red is the symbol of blood and life and White is the symbol of happiness and purity. Martenitsa is made by the red and white thread but in some places like Rhodope Mountain is used also thread in yellow, blue or black color. In addition people put also almonds, garlic and silver coins. The Martenitsa is usually made by the old women at home and with a help of the kids. A special Martenitsa is made for newborn babies. People put Martenitsa also in newborn farm animals, grape and fruit trees.
The 1st of March is connected with the comming spring. The nature is awake. It is said that this tradition is very old. In 680 a.c. the sister of Bulgarian Khan Asparuh sent him flowers closed with red and white thread with a wish for a lot of health and happiness.
So Let all my Martenitsas bring you a lot of Health and Happiness!
