Please join us on Friday, March 1 for a REEEC Crafternoon event! We will enjoy festive snacks as we celebrate Baba Marta and make our own martenitsi. On March 1 all across the Balkans, people celebrate the martenitsa/martisor/martinka, the known symbol of spring. Participants exchange small red and white adornments that symbolize health, prosperity, and the triumph of life over a cold and dark winter. These tokens are worn as bracelets, pins, or charms until the first signs of spring emerge, whereupon they are tied to blossoming trees.
Stop by Coble Hall between 3 and 5pm to make your own!
Честита Баба Марта!
