About this deal

Personalised advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. The tradition of martisor marks the beginning of spring and changing of seasons in Romania, being just the first of a series of celebrations in March. These flowers can also be turned into martisoare, if you attach the red and white string to the bouquet, or can accompany the martisor you want to give.

Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. By now it was pitch dark for the sun was still not shining, and all humans were mourning, their wailing having replaced the song of birds and the singing of streams. In Romania, the most superstitious ones say that the person who finds a horseshoe has to throw it over his/her shoulder or place it on one of the house’s walls for good luck.It is believed that the person who wears the red and white string would enjoy a prosperous and healthy year. Do fashion it if you don’t have an old one, wear it, the plain red and white entwined strings, before your feet even touch the ground on the morning of the 1st of March.

During the time that Sun had turned himself into a maiden, and darkness had covered earth, snow fell too. March 1 is the day Romanians celebrate ‘Martisor’, an old tradition related to spring arrival and warm weather, also symbolizing love, respect and friendship.Girls and boys were gifted with this special thread on the 1st of March, before the sun showed its face up on the sky. Martisor is an authentic Romanian celebration that dates back to the time of the Thracians, but also the name given to the little talismans with red and white strings offered during this holiday. The moon itself, as deity, has an evil significance, being the prototype of the impulsive woman who patronizes night, winter and cold, unlike the Sun, the understanding paternal deity, the protector of the daylight, summer and life. They were worn, to bring good luck and good weather, from March 1 until the first trees would bloom. It was the way it’s always been, the way his father honored the tradition, as did his father before him.
