Baba Marta / Марта the month of March;


Explanation:
е това е за pro, idi sega i obiasniavai :(

When she was smiling the sun was shining; when she was mad at somebody cold weather was firming the ground. The mythical character of Baba Marta personifies the spring, the sun that can easily burn the fair skin of people's faces. The majority of the rituals aim to make her happy and merciful. She is Grandmother Marta, in Bulgarian "Baba Marta."
