The holiday Surva is one of our winter holidays, it is always celebrated on January 1, in which our ancestors celebrated Surva day, the day of light. On this day the nine dirty or black days end, in which the Sun hesitates whether to continue on its old path or to take a new one. On the first day of the new year, it is clear that the Sun will again follow its well-known path and the life of Earth will continue as we know it.
According to legends, the first martenitsa was made by Achinora, the wife of Khan Asparukh, in the second half of the seventh century, when Asparukh crossed the Danube and discovered the lands around the Balkans for the Bulgarians.
