Spring is here!

March 1, 2012

In Romania, we celebrate March the first as the first day of spring. Sometimes there is still snow lying around, sometimes the sun is beating down. This year we have a little of both, but one thing we do know is that summer will soon be upon us.

At this time, we buy or make Martisoare, these come in different forms, such as cards, pins, jewellery or simply a bunch of spring flowers, but everyone enjoys to give and receive these as a sign of agreement that the winter is now behind us and the blue skies ahead.

 

If the temperatures are low on this day, you can be sure that within a week they will start to rise, almost as if the community has told the earth how it will be. The literal translation for Martisoare being March-Sunshine!

Here is a little March Sunshine from us to you.
