Martenitsa on the blueberry bush

Martenitsa is a little peace made out of white and red yarn. People from Bulgaria celebrate on 1st of Match the Holiday Baba Marta. everyone wear Martenitsa and give to their friend. The tradition says around 22nd of March or when the person sees the first sign of spring to hang the Martenitsa on a fruit tree or bush and wish for a good year with many fruits and vegetables. Since the weather got warmer and we saw some robins ,we hang our Martenitsi on our blueberry bush. The picture was taken by my 8 yr old son. It seems he has the same passion for photography like me. :)
