The Dacian tradition marks 1st of March as the beginning of a New Year. Everything comes to life again, flowers, nature, warmth and everyone shows this celebration in the way they dress, the way they show their love to each other..women get a symbolic “martisor” or flowers, man gets busy making long lists of flowers to send to the ones they love and admire ..there is a joy and happiness in everyone’s hearts.I had the upmost pleasure to be dressed up in the traditional attires of Maramures by Godja Ileana and her mother Nemes Maria and I can tell you, one really feels you go back in times ..hundred years! It was a special moment with lots of laughter and deep connections with the past in the same time. Thank you Ileana and Maria!
