Learn the history of mărțișor and watch the Romanian Room committee make them and talk about this old tradition.

Falling on March 1 of every year, Mărțișor is an old Romanian tradition of gifting a red and white string attached to a small piece of jewelry or a flower. This is believed to bring the wearer health and luck.

As part of the month-long virtual celebration of Mărțișor, come to the Global Hub to make mărțișor on March 2 with materials provided by the Romanian Nationality Room Committee.
