Martis (March) Panagia Cross Bracelet
The tradition of the Martis bracelet (derived from the Greek word for March) dates back to Ancient Greek times. It was a way to usher in the transition from winter to spring. On March 1st, it was said that if you tie a red and white string around your wrist, it will protect your cheeks from burning in the sun. The white string represents purity and the red for the color of sun kissed cheeks.
