1st of March, smiling, brought you a spring amulet...

1 Martie, zambitor, v-a adus un martisor...

“Martisor” is made from red and white twisted string from which a small decoration is tied and is offered to people on 1st of March.
 It is an old tradition in Romania, the Republic of Moldova and all territories inhabited by Romanians. Bulgarians have an almost similar custom.
Women usually wear it pinned to their clothes for first 12 days of the month.
After the 12 days, the string binds on a tree branch.
It is believed that those who wear it will be strong and healthy for the year to come and it is also a symbol of spring.
