Yesterday in my country we celebrated the incoming of the spring and during the month we carry white and red bracelets, necklaces, etc. in order to be healthy and happy during the year.
Not also we carry, but we give other people these kind of bracelets, called “martenitzas”. I bought a special martenitza for my Literature teacher, as I love the subject very much and have respect for her (also, she prepares me for the annual Literature olympiad). The martenitza was with a little key on it.
“Here you are, miss, a little key to happiness, luck and success!”, I said, as giving it to her. And in response, my teacher said: “I have a key to success for you too. Go to the teachers’ room and you will see a list with names on it on the table.”, she smiled at me. To my surprise, I saw my name on it and that I was on th 1st place at the Literature olympiad from the region! I was on cloud nine! I bought a sweetmeat box and went home, where I told my family the good news. We said “Cheers!” for the current and future successes.
