mărţişor = romanian string which consists of a white string and a red string woven together, with a little talisman attached to it. The mărţişor is weared by children and women from 1st March until the first trees blossoms, when they have to hang it from a branch in bloom (not every blossom branch, but the one of a fruit tree). It is believed that mărţişor brings health and good luck to the wearer.
