Baba Marta is a mythical character in Bulgarian folklore. The feast of Baba Marta is a symbol of spring. Many customs and holidays dedicated to the coming spring are associated with Baba Marta and the month of March. The most famous custom associated with Baba Marta is the decoration on March 1 of people and young animals with a martenitsa – twisted red and white thread. Many legends tell about the origin of the Bulgarian martenitsa, but all of them are related to the proto-Bulgarians and the founder of the Bulgarian state – Khan Asparuh.
