Baba Marta is here

The martenitsa is an adornment made with intertwined white and red threads. Putting on a martenitsa on March 1 is one of the most popular traditions in Bulgaria in honour of the upcoming spring. It is believed that the martenitsa bestows health and fertility.
As early as the beginning of February, the streets of Sofia are filled with martenitsa vendors. Its colours have a symbolic meaning: red represents blood and life, while white – purity and happiness. In the past, people put on martenitsas on their domestic animals, fruit trees and houses in order to protect them from any evil forces. Tradition has it, that the martenitsas you receive as a gift will bring you happiness and good luck. Thus, everyone gives martenitsas to their relatives and friends.
The martenitsa is worn until you see a stork or a blossoming tree - symbols of the spring and its warmth.

On March 3, 2019 we will celebrate 141 years since the Liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule. On this memorable day in 1878 was signed the San Stefano Peace Treaty between Russia and the Ottoman empire which put an end to the Russo-Turkish war (1877 – 1878) and established the Third Bulgarian Tsardom. At Alexander Nevsky Cathedral Church in the capital, after a Holy Mass at 10 o’clock, a memorial and thanksgiving service will be held in honor of the National Holiday. The official ceremony of raising the national flag and a solemn ceremony of laying wreaths and flowers will take place at the Monument to the Unknown Soldier at 11 o’clock.

Annunciation

On March 25, the Orthodox Church celebrates the announcement of the Savior’s birth. It was Archangel Gabriel who told Virgin Mary the good news.
Bulgarians call this holiday also Blagoveshtenie, Blagovets and half Easter. Popular belief has it that on this day swallows fly back to bring the good news that winter is gone and summer has come.
Based on folk etymology of the name of the feast (Blagovets - good, sweet), it is believed that each wound heals very quickly on this day. Thus, it is precisely on Blagovets that girls have their ears pierced and breeders brand their livestock.
