1st of March

1st of March is the time of joy, the celebration of spring and Romanians and Bulgarians are waiting for this moment in accordance with their own traditions. The Romanians have the martisor and the Bulgarians martenitsa - braided cords or tassels, in white-red, which symbolize life, happiness, love, health and fertility.

If in Romania, martisoare are given to women, in Bulgaria even animals can receive a white-red cord. The common meaning of white is happiness, masculine strength, longevity, while the red represents life, feminine spirit, fertility. Although there are different traditions and customs, the Romanian martisor or the Bulgarian martenitsa universally means a talisman against the evil spirits of the world, a wish for health and a sign of appreciation.

We wish you a spring full of energy, enthusiasm and joy!
