Baba Marta (Bulgarian: Баба Марта, "Granny March") is the name of a mythical figure who brings with her the end of the cold winter and the beginning of the spring. Her holiday of the same name is celebrated in Bulgaria on March 1 with the exchange and wearing of martenitsi. Baba Marta folklore is also present in southern and eastern Serbia where it is a reference as to a freezing weather change after a spring break.
"Martenitsi" are red and white coloured bands or figurines that symbolise health and happiness, a lucky charm against evil spirits.
This card is ordered by my sister as a gift together with martenitsa.
The bird is carved from a calendar - represented commemorative coin of the Bulgarian National Bank. Yellow organza is wrapping flowers.
