The Spring "Martisor"

Martisor – March Charm

February 29, 2016

The “martisor” is, in popular tradition, a symbol of weeks, months and years gathered and twisted into a string with two colors, the colors representing the winter and the summer. It represents a present given to the women on the first of March. The richer families had “martisoare” with strings made of silver and gold. Children would wear it tied to their hand, on their chests or around their necks.
