Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

Честита Баба Марта! (Happy Grandma March!) | 2013


Честита Баба Марта!

(Happy Grandma March)


March 1st is one of my favorite Bulgarian holidays.

Why you ask?



These red and white bits of awesomeness make for one great month!

Read about martenitsi and the holiday here and here.

The big move back to Smolyan is today so things will be a little quiet on GMB for a few days until we get internet.

We’re heading to Shiroka Laka tomorrow for the 2013 Pesponedelnik/Kukeri Festival, so expect lots of photos when I return!

  1. I’m a little late, but Chestita Baba Marta to you and Vince!

  2. My husband’s Grandfather was from Bulgaria so our family in Plovdiv have sent our children Martenitsis to wear 🙂 which my son proudly did at school today. He kept saying “Happy Baba Marta.”
