First of March!

Though it doesn't seem that way here in the stormy South East, today is the first of March, celebrated as the first day of spring in Moldova (and Romania). So, to wish all my bloggy buddies a happy first of March, here's a Martisor for you!
Some say the white represents the snow and the red represents the first flower of spring. Anyhow, people give martisoare (the plural of martisor) to their friends and loved ones on the first of March. You pin it on your shirt or your coat, and wear it for 12 days. So here's yours. I guess you can't really print it and pin it on, but it's the thought that counts! Happy spring!
