[ 2nd Mar 2002 ] martisori | leave a comment

Finally. February has come to end, and the spring began. By the way, February in Ukrainian is "lyutyi", which can be translated directly as "fierce". Besides, yesterday spring began only formally, for in our part of the Globe there were no real frost since the middle of January. And the fierce month with approximate temperature of +10C looked more friendly then usually this year. So, it wasn't up to its name.

Also yesterday with the beginning of spring I found out about another Romanian tradition to give each other martisors (pronounced "martsishor", and comes from "martie" which means March). Be attentive, not to get drunk or kick someone's ass, but to give martisors. Let's now take a closer look at the subject (Konst takes a matisor from the shelve). A little thing which consists of a thread painted red and white tied up into a little bow. There are two strawberries on both its ends. In fact, it can look anyhow, and on the ends there can also be hearts, animals, whatever, there even can be Osama bin Laden, for it doesn't matter a lot. However, the red and white thread must present, because it symbolizes a scene from a national fairy-tale. The latter said about the meeting of winter and spring, where winter was an ugly old woman, and spring, respectively, was a pretty young lady with the breast size no less than three. A fight began between the two, and the winter wounded the girl with some kind of a cold weapon. Blood falled down onto a snowdrop flower and that's how the colors combination was formed.

By the way, about spring and ladies. There is a must read text in Russian which is called "Today I'm gonna lay Lena", and resides here.
