Welcomes Spring with Martisor Day

Romania Welcomes Spring with Martisor Day.
The name Mărțișor is the diminutive of marț, the old folk name for March (Martie, in modern Romanian), and thus literally means "little March". It is also the folk name for this month.
Mărțișor, marț and mărțiguș are all names for the red and white string from which a small decoration is tied, and which is offered by people on the 1st day of March.
We are pleased to offer you a Snowdrop, a detail of a watercolour of Mariela from the collection of "M. et Em. ART ASSOCIATION"
