I wanted to wish you “Happy Grandmother March” with a virtual Martenitsa.
This is a typical Bulgarian holiday celebrating the approaching spring.

On 1st March people in Bulgaria wish each other "Chestita Baba Marta" (Happy Grandmother March) and give each other red and white woolen tassels for health and good luck called Martenitsa.

Background on Baba Marta holiday:
On the 1st of March Bulgarian people celebrate a traditional holiday called Baba Marta (or Grandma Marta in English) and it is related to welcoming the approaching spring. People all over the world meet spring with joy and new hopes but in Bulgaria, it is saved as an ancient tradition. On that day, Bulgarians exchange, so-called "Martenitsi" ("Martenitsa" - singular, "Martenitsi" - plural) and tell each other, "Chestita Baba Marta!" (Happy Grandma Marta!) ("baba" means grandmother and Marta comes from word "mart", which means March in Bulgarian). This custom is essentially to wish great health, good luck, and happiness to family and friends

Честита Баба Марта! :)
