AN OLD BULGARIAN TRADITION BABA MARTA!

Slide 3: 

In Bulgaria we have a very interesting tradition and it is related to the 1st of March. It is not a big holiday, but it is more traditional than celebration and is based on the founding of Bulgaria, 681 AD.

Slide 4: 

The month of March according to Bulgarian folk belief marks the beginning of the springtime. Therefore the 1st day of March is a traditional holiday associated with sending off the winter and welcoming the spring.

Slide 5: 

Pizho and Penda are the traditional red boy and white girl Martenitsa. They are made from tassels. A little bit of thread is separated for the arms then tied and cut shorter. The waist is tied too. Then Penda the girl is ready. For the boy tie two separate legs as though wearing trousers. A little apron could be made for the girl and a hat for the boy.
