Да не забравите рано сутринта да изметете дома си и да сложите на балкона някаква червена дреха или плат, че Баба Марта да се усмихне!!
Пък дано пусне слънчицето да ни стопли и съживи, а пролетта да разкраси всичко наоколо. Бяло-сивата гама вече ми омръзна...At the end of February Bulgarians prepare or buy for their relatives and friends "martenitsa"-s - a double red and white tassel. On the first day of March they put the "martenitsa"-s on their clothes or wrists and wish each other health and happiness with the words "Happy Grandma Marta!" (from the Bulgarian word for "March" - "mart"). This is an ancient Bulgarian tradition (existing, perhaps, for more than one thousand years) which symbolizes the end of the winter and the coming of the spring... "Martenitsa"-s are supposed to be worn until one sees a stork, returning from the South, or a tree in blossom. Then they have to be tied to the tree or put under a stone. Grandma Marta is famous with her changing moods - that's why the days in March are so diverse - rainy and cold, sunny and warm.
