{Welcome Spring - A Greek Custom!}

March is considered to be the beginning of spring!
In Greece we have a custom related to the beginning of spring!
The mothers would traditionally give their children a white and red bracelet, called Μάρτης (Martis aka March) in order not to get sunburned! 

It is considered to be a a protector of the new seasonal period! The children are suppossed to wear it until Easter or until they see the first swallow!

Here is the how to!
I crocheted the bracelet by holding together a white and red yarn! I chained 30 and attached two little red wooden beads! Of course the number of chains depends on your wrist size!
Let's welcome spring with this little bracelet!
Try it yourselves!
