The calendar for March, Daffodil Girl, is here! My inspiration for this month’s calendar was spring daffodils, which are one of my fave flowers with their yellow star shapes and fragrant spring scent.
Daffodils remind me of growing up in Bucharest, Romania, of early spring days when they would fight the last of winter and would burst through patches of snow.
March 1 is a Romanian holiday called Martisor, a Valentine’s Day of sorts celebrating love. Boys would give their crushes special, cute little charms tied with red and white silk strings with one red and one white tassel at each end, and students would give them to their favorite teachers as a sign of caring. We would pin all the charms we received on our chests on our uniforms and wear them proudly all day in school, and sometimes for an entire week or two well into March.
March 8 is also International Woman’s Day, celebrated widely throughout Europe, and I loved combining these two holidays and my memories of celebrating them in Daffodil Girl. I hope you enjoy her and she brings warm spring sunshine your way with her yellow daffodil starbursts.
