March 1st celebrates the holiday of Martisor in Romania. Little symbolic talismans are gifted to girls and women, tied with a lucky red and white string. These are to be worn as broches for several days (above, Mary is holding a martisor showing a chimney sweeper, another sign of good luck, sent to us by one of our Romanian friends).
Also an early March tradition is "Babele" (the Old Ladies): pick one of the first nine days of March in advance, and its weather will represent your fortune in the current year.
This year I picked March 1st and today is a beautiful sunny day after a stormy night last night :)
Enjoy Spring, enjoy March, one of my favorite months!
