Grandmother Marta, traditional Bulgarian custom (Baba Marta)
All over the world peolpe meet spring with joy and new hope but it is only in Bulgaria where it is saved as an ancient custom.

If you are walking along the streets in Bulgaria on the 1st of March you will witness many smiling faces. But first of all your eyes will be captured by martenitsas. Everyone has decorated their clothes with them. Moreover, you can see decorated dogs and cats. In the small villages in the mountains people decorate their domestic animals: lambs, kids, young horses. Houses have their own martenitsa, as well.
