Welcome March! Welcome Spring! Did you put your bracelets on? :-)

From 1 to the 31 of March, a bracelet made of twisted white and red thread, called Martis, was worn on the wrist. According to popular tradition, the "Martis" was worn primarily by children to protect the faces of the first sun of spring.
The "Martis" was made the last day of February and worn either as a ring or like a bracelet. Sometimes it was worn even on the big toe, so that the person wearing it not to stumble.
"Martis" is not only worn by people. In some areas of the country, thread was hung all night on the branches of a rose bush to offer flowering, while in other areas the thread was put around the pitchers to protect the water from the sun and keep it cold. Elsewhere it is worn until the first swallows appear, then it was left on rose's branches so that the birds take it to build their nest.
The "Martis" is an ancient custom spread across the Balkans due to its adoption by the Byzantines.It is believed to have its origings in ancient Greece, specifically in the Eleusinian Mysteries, because at the start of the Eleusinian Mysteries they used to tie a thread, the "Kroki" on their right hand and their left foot.
