In Romania we have a tradition. On march 1th we selebrate the first  day of Spring by giving 'martisoare'. In our school we respect this tradition so we make our own 'martisor'.We asked the parents, brothers, sisters and grandmothers to help us. And it turned out to be a great ideea. We made beautiful things.

"Marzanna" - polish tradition. Marzanna - on the fourth Sunday in the time of fasting is aceremony of destruction. Destruction, or Death is represented by a dollnamed Marzanna, Morena or simply death. This doll is plunged into wateror burned. Marzanna’s symbolism represents winter, death, sickness,destruction and starvation of the people. This ritual is meant to speedup the onslaught of spring and is to this day still practiced albeitmuch less commonly than in the past. Today this is primarily practicedby children plunging the Marzanna doll into water. We our Marzanna to post ofice to send it "to the sea":)
