Don’t let the sun of early spring burn your cheeks!
According to the spring tradition of “Marti” , adults and children wear a small bracelet made of red and white thread from March 1st till the 31st.
The superstition is that the children wear these bracelets so that the sun of early spring doesn’t burn their cheeks.
Tradition also dictates that these March bracelelets are always given as gifts, not bought for oneself. They are given to loved ones, friends, and those people to whom one feels close.
Nowadays, the custom is still carried on with the red and white threaded bracelet and it is worn throughout the whole month of March.
