Newlyweds mark the beginning of spring. This day is one of the major Christian holidays of the spring cycle where the memory of the forty soldiers from Sevastia, who died as martyrs without renouncing the Christian faith, is celebrated.

This holiday is celebrated by married couples in the first year of marriage, those who got married after March 22 of the previous year.

In the past in Macedonia, the holiday of the Holy Forty Martyrs was associated with a number of customs and beliefs. Some of them are associated with the memory of the Holy 40 Soldiers of Sebastia, and others with the spring equinox, the day of spring and the revival of nature.

According to some, young people who got married the year before Mladenci, on this day go to church where they light the candles from the wedding to burn.

On the evening of Mladenci, guests are invited to the youth home to wish them happiness in marriage and wishes for a newborn. In some cases, visits are also made to families who have received a newborn.

The women welcome the morning and knead cookies for a long, happy and sweet life, and serve the guests with them. The holiday always falls during Lent, so the food prepared for that day must be fasting. In addition to cakes, Mladenci eats honey, boiled nettles and cabbage to cleanse the blood.

Some of our famous couples who celebrate Newlyweds today shared moments from their wedding celebrations with emotional messages on the occasion of today's holiday.
