Happy 1st of March!

There is an old Romanian tradition where men offer a small gift to women on 1st of March. The gift is wear and always has a nice red-white string (that's what makes it a " martisor"). The initial custom was that men were receving gifts from women, something changed in the last centuries, the meaning is the same! ;)

It means that spring is here. Here is one for all you ladies out there! The only one on the site by the way, which should give all Romanians an idea about what to shoot this weekend. ;)

We probably lack many other local symbols so if you are not a Romanian you might want to consider your most important local symbols and see how they are represented on the site.

Happy 1st of March!

The gift is in the giving!!


Very nice image. But indeed like Achile said it is o romanian celebration and ... the sales are relevant.


Thanks, Achilles, for reminding me that autumn starts for us in South Africa on the 1st of March :-((( *grrrr* :-)))


It took Denise less than 10 minutes, I bet Ellen thought it was more complicated! At least I did :)


St. David’s Day The feast day of St. David patron saint of Wales , there are two rendered dragons for this but several if you search St. David

thanks to Achilles as well!!


March 1 also has a completely different meaning in another country. Dreamstime has two images for this one. Do you know what the holiday is? Where it is from? And can you find the two images?


I don't know for Romanian but in Bulgaria its tradition and everybody gift to everybody and we don't take out until we see stork or blowing branch. It's tradition because memory of one our national heroes. And I didn't know until now that it's tradition in Romania too.
