Additional Info: The Martenitsa is a small amulet, worn from Baba Marta Day/ Grandma March Day (March 1) until the wearer first sees a stork, swallow (or until the end of March). The red and white woven threads symbolize the wish for good health. They are the heralds of the coming of spring and of new life. Tradition dictates that Martenitsi are always given as gifts, not bought for oneself. They are given to loved ones, friends, and those people to who one feels close and also to animals for good health and long life. Bulgarian story relates the first Martenitsi to the 7th-century Battle of Ongal between the Bulgar Khan Asparuh and the Byzantines, which resulted in a decisive Bulgar victory. After the battle, the Bulgar Khan sent eagles with white threads to announce the victory to his main camp. The threads turned bloody during the flight, thus creating the first Martenitsa. It's inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
