On the first day of March and for a few days afterwards, Bulgarians exchange and wear white and red tassels. In Bulgarian folklore the name Baba Marta (in Bulgarian баба Марта meaning Grandma March) is related to a grumpy old lady whose mood swings change very rapidly. This is an old pagan tradition that remains almost unchanged today. Many people wear more than one martenitsa. The tradition calls for wearing the martenitsa until the person sees a stork or a blooming tree.
