Hello Spring! Let’s welcome my dear spring the right way. 

If you are from Romania, you already know that March 1st is a double special day. The joy of receiving and offering flowers and martisoare to announce the beginning of spring is like no other and I’m happy I got to spend this day at home with my loved ones. 

If you are not from Romania and you would like to know that is a Mărțișor, then I have an old fairy tale for you.

On the first day of March , Romanians celebrate the coming of spring in their own unique way.

Mărțișor is an old tradition celebrated in Romania every year, on March 1st. The name is a diminutive from Martie (March, in Romanian). Initially made just from two twisted red and white threads of wool, martisorul has evolved, incorporating a small piece of jewelry or something handmade attached to the red-white lace. Some people say that the two colors represent love and purity. It is believed that the person who wears the silky red and white string for the entire month of March will have strength and health for the year to come.

Most of all, it is a symbol of friendship, love, appreciation and respect, a small gift from men to women. In some regions, men receive mărțișoare as well.

I decided to celebrate this special day with some white, pink and baby blue. Just like that, a mix of some spring colors. 

How did you spend the first day of spring, wherever you are around the world?
