It's still chilly outside and the snow is still here just like yesterday but two things are different:
The sun came out at noon to let us remember how spring feels like and the second: the flower prices hit the sky.
Why? Well, we have this beautiful and sometimes costly custom called Martisor.
Martisor is a spring symbol in the form of an amulet, any kind of figurine, mostly handmade, with a white-red string attached to it. The string is a must.
They are sold everywhere, is shops and streets.
Accompanied by beautiful spring flowers, the Martisor is given as a sign of appreciation to women by friends, colleagues, children (even husband), on the 1st of March.
Hyacinth, as a symbol of rebirth, is one of the flowers of the day.
