Martisor is a popular Romanian holiday celebrated on the 1st of March. This month of the year is seen as the start of spring, the month when nature comes to life. The tradition says that at the beginning of March men offer this amulet, called martisor, to the girls they love.
In time, this custom has been changed and right now this amulet is not only given by men to the girls they love, but friends also give it to each other as a simbol of friendship and a herald of spring.
At present, “martisoarele” are not represented just by 2 threads, but they are ornated with all kind of flowers and adornments to make them more beautiful.
Traditional or ornated, “martisorul” remains a symbol of sacrifice, meaning at the same time the arrival of spring. The red color represents the love for all that is beautiful and is a symbol of the blood the young man dropped. White symbolizes purity, health and the snowdrop, the first flower that appears in spring.
"DRAGOBETE" is a traditional Romanian holiday, considered the first day of spring and celebrated on February 24. It is known also as " the day when the birds are getting engaged/ ziua cand pasarile se logodesc" or the "Romanian's day of lovers/ ziua indragostitilor la romani", when Romanians celebrate the ancient love day, the rebirth of nature and the symbol of protection against diseases.
Anyhow, the Romanian "Dragobete" is a positive character originated from Romanian folklore considered symbol of pure love or the Romanian counterpart of Greek "Eros". "Dragobete", named also "Dragomir", was the son of Baba Dochia (a Daco-Thracian tale said that Dochia was the sister of Decebal, the Dacian ruler). Dochia was taken her sheep and her son up in the mountains to seek refuge from the invasion of the Romans. Although she carried 12 lambskins when runs away in the mountains, she looses them and freezes, latter being metamorphosed into a stream. Her son, Dragobete, was a hansom guy, lover of wild nature, who liked to kiss girls ;-)
