About this deal

March 1 is the day Romanians celebrate ‘Martisor’, an old tradition related to spring arrival and fine weather, also symbolizing love, respect and friendship. Everything went sad: birds did not sing anymore, springs were not flowing, children did not laugh anymore. Then… they would tie the Martisor thread to a white rose or a blossomed tree, bearer of fruit, for good luck. They are usually small items, such as handmade flowers, jewelry and figurines tied with a red and white entwined cord. A Braveheart, a Voinic, a young lad, shorter than the average, true, but one who saw, and did, and thought, and acted.

st of March, 1 Martie Martisor, especially the red and white thread, is still alive in Romania, and everywhere a Romanian heart beats, but also in the lands once populated by the Thracian tribes such as Republic of Moldova, Bulgaria, North of Macedonia, Greece, and within Romanian communities from Serbia and Ukraine. However, another symbol of good luck is the martisor representing a four-leaf clover (opening picture). Eventually, humans, feeling guilty for not having come to the lad’s rescue, thought of bringing at least a small homage to Braveheart.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).

Some older traditions held it should be worn from the first new moon of March until next significant holiday for the local community, which could be anywhere between 9 March and 1 May, or until first tree flowers blossomed, depending on the area. How interesting to have only the two seasons … the way of the weather these days it almost feels right!
