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!

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?
