… or Happy Baba Marta! Today and throughout March Bulgarians celebrate the Baba Marta tradition (in English „Granny March“, learn more about it here) by giving small red-white dolls or gifts to each other (called „martenitsa“). The team of Inter HECS – Study in Bulgaria wishes you luck and health – just what a martenitsa represents!
Also, to make one of the most beloved Bulgarian traditions even more fun for international students, we are organizing a small Facebook „Baba Martacontest“! What you need to do is simply write in the comment section below our Baba Marta post how we greet each other in March! The trick? You must do this in Bulgarian language! At 10 AM (Bulgarian time) on Monday, 5th March we will announce the winner, chosen from a random draw of all people who guessed it right!
The prize? Since we want to encourage international students living in Bulgaria to explore different cultures, the winner of the contest will win 50 BGN voucher for an international restaurant in the Bulgarian city he/she lives in (e.g. see the list of international restaurants in Sofia and international restaurants in Plovdiv)!
