Martenitsa

Martenitsa, The Bulgarian Amulet for Health and Luck

 you are a foreigner walking along the streets in Bulgaria on the 1st of March, you will for sure be surprised to see all people - and even their pets - wearing red-and-white threads in various shapes. Some look like tassels, others like human figures, and still others can be decorated with blue beads, small golden coins or colorful threads. They can be worn on the wrist, on your neck as a necklace or on the left side of your dress. This is the martenitsa, the traditional symbol of health, luck and reviving nature.
