New Weekly: Martenitsa

On the 1st of March Bulgarian people celebrate a traditional holiday called Baba Marta (or Grandma Marta in English) and it is related to welcoming the approaching spring. People all over the world meet spring with joy and new hopes but in Bulgaria it is saved as an ancient tradition.

Image

In Bulgarian folklore Baba Marta is a grumpy old woman who changes her mood very rapidly and it reflects in the changeable March weather. When she is smiling the weather is sunny and warm, but if she gets angry the cold will stay for longer and it may even snow. By wearing the red and white colors of the Martenitsa our predecessors asked Baba Marta for mercy. They hoped that it will make winter pass faster and bring spring.

Dress in a Martenitsa inspired outfit.

Dressed as the „ Baba "

Lady name : Andreea
ID: 4035676
For anyone curious - Side note: In Romanian folklore there is the same persona, the same symbols but with another name (Baba Dochia and the handcrafts called "mărțișoare") and there are multiple legends connected to her. Sincerely I never knew about the Bulgarian holiday so really glad to have discovered it.
For example: she sent her daughter in law to complete an impossible mission ment to separate her from her son, the girl succeeded with the help of a magical flower (hence the flowers); thinking it was spring the old lady went out with all the coats on her, but as the sun kept shining more and more she had dropped all of them and then the weather changed and she froze to death as punishment and now she represents some stones present in our mountains. 1st march is called Mărțișor (which I think resembles also with Martenitsa). Specifics of this day are wearing brooch on your chest and flowers and the 2 colors white and red.
