Romania (and some of the other countries in the area) welcomes spring in a special way: with Martisor holiday! It is a holiday celebrating spring, a new beginning, the end of cold winter and the rebirth of nature. All over the country people receive “martisoare” (trinkets) – in some parts of the country the women receive them (including where I live), while in Northern regions of Romania, men receive them. Yes, interesting traditions all over the country.
This year we start the spring with a day that is usually for resting, relaxing, to spend with friends and family (Sunday). Even if it is not a sunny day (so far) I wish you to have a wonderful day and an amazing spring!
