Fewer buyers this year at martisors fairs
Even though the weather outside was gloomy today, the first day of spring has happily arrived in people's souls and faces. People did not give up the tradition of giving martisors and came to the fairs in the center of the capital. However, the pandemic has upset the plans of traders, who complain that sales are modest compared to previous years. Even so, folk craftsmen competed in the variety of martisors, reports Moldova 1.
Although there were few buyers at the tables where the martisors are sold, they did not hesitate to take out of their pockets even hundreds of lei to please their loved ones.
In 2017, martisor was inscribed in the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO humanity. The file was submitted in 2014 by the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria and Macedonia, countries where martisor is worn during March.
