Hi Adina, I've enjoyed your article yet again...
I also wanted to let you know I recently learned that in certain parts of the country, such as Bucovina and Moldova, girls give Martisoare to boys too...
I also wanted to add that some other stories say the red and white cord is relating to the seasons...the white symbolizes the coldness of the soon-to-be-over winter and the red symbolizes the heat of the summer coming up... Kinda like a celebration of the growing season coming up...
Anyway...I absolutely love all the pictures you show in the article...
And I wore the Martisor you sent me last year when I went to work on March 1st...needless to say I had to explain the custom several times throughout the day...not much work got done at my office that day...lol

This is the martisor I received this year from my DH : a bracelet! Seems more like Bulgarian style, but I like it!
