Mărțișor 2022

Join us for a virtual celebration!  Learn the history of mărțișor and watch the Romanian Room committee make them and talk about this old tradition. Informative and fun!

Falling on March 1 of every year, Martişor 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 health and luck to the wearer.

If you have your own made martişor please share a photo by March 7 and send to romaniannationalityroompitt@gmail.com and we will create a slide show to share with everyone!

This event is eligible for credit in the Outside of the Classroom Curriculum for Pitt undergraduate students.

Pitt students are invited to the Global Hub on the first floor of Posvar Hall on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 from 12 - 1 pm to make your own mărțișor with materials provided by the Romanian Nationality Room Committee and to enjoy traditional Romanian snacks.
