Martenitsa Day Gift Stalls Still Working

Martenitsa Day Gift Stalls Still WorkingIt is one week after Martenitsa Day or Baba Marta Den (1st March) has passed and still the gift stalls are working and selling the red and white traditional emblems of the day. It is another few weeks before the traditional bracelets gifted to friends can be taken off and either hung on a tree or bush branch or put under a rock and a wish can be made. In this part of Bulgaria this can't be done before sighting the first stork that migrate here to nest. On the western side of Bulgarian in the Sofia area, they don't get these big gracious birds and have to wait until the first bud of spring has opened.
