    Ways to Celebrate the Woman in Your Life

    Spring is getting closer and closer, which means that the time to celebrate women across the world is near. In Romania, we celebrate the arrival of spring on 1st of March by giving small presents to the women in our life. These presents could be something small called “martisor” or simply a bouquet of flowers. Everybody is to receive a gift – from the youngest to the eldest. I remember that when I was a child, my dad use to buy my sister and I snowdrops, and freesias for my mum.   It was a nice way to start spring, and as freesias are my mum’s favourite flowers she was always really…

    March traditions and celebrations in Romania

    In my home country Romania, spring starts on 1st of March with the celebration of Martisor. But Martisor is not the only tradition for the month of March.
