I first learned about the Martenitza tradition in Bulgaria when I went to visit my best friend there in March of 1984. I have been making them since then, and taught all my Kindergarten children how to make them as well. Thanks for all the lovely photos and more ideas of what to include on them. I always used twisted red and white yarn, with red and white silk flowers...Time to make more and start wearing them to make Baba Marta Happy!
thanks so much for the article. I'd love to correspond with you.

Jana, thanks for sharing about the Bulgarian tradition which you are carrying on so beautiful. Your kindergarten kids must be so thrilled to make the martenitzas!
I read about this tradition and it seems that Baba Marta is related to our Baba Dochia, thus the "Babele" tradition we have from March 1st to March 9th. I see a new article coming up next year!LOL
I'd also love to correspond with you. Sending you an email soon.
