So this weekend I received my first Martenitsa from a dear friend. What is Martenitsa? From my understanding (or Wiki’s!) it’s a Bulgarian tradition “of which a small piece of adornment, made of white and red yarn is worn in March” symbolising the wish for good health and luck.
(Strangely another similarity among many I’ve noticed between the Bulgarian and Indian cultures.)
