Martisor

Happy 1st of March. It is today that the Romanian’s celebrate the coming of Spring: Martisor.

Red and white ribbons are given as gifts. Often a small token of luck is attached to accompany you through spring.

This was one of my favourite days back when I lived in Romania. Everyone just seemed so content. The darkness of winter was coming to an end. The slush that is supposed to be snow that had accumulated on the streets was melting and the first flowers of spring would fight their way through the grey watery snow that laid on the sides of the road. 

O Primavara fericita tuturor!

Martisor
