Martisor

By GabrielG
"Martisorul" (or the trinket), celebrated on March 1, is a romanian tradition.
According to archaeological research, the "martisor" traces its history more than 8,000 years ago. Some ethnologists believe that the "martisor" celebration has Roman origins, others support the theory that it is an old Dacian tradition.
Nowadays, "martisorul" is a symbol of spring, and the martisor item itself has become a true work of art.
On March 1, ladies usually receive "martisoare" from men.

Thank you, Fred.
The "martisor" has a small size and it is caught on a coat.
