New Year’s fortunes for travelers

We have prepared several different series of fortunes. You can read them and write your favorites into small notes to put in the banitsa, or use the file we have prepared.

Just download the file, print it, cut it into different fortunes and you’re done – you have some original fortunes for New Year, created and written with a lot of love. We’ve crafted files with New Year’s fortunes in Bulgarian so far and we did our best to translate some of them to English, so you can have “късмети за Нова Година на английски”.
