Happy dragon beat!

On February 24th Romanians celebrate  “Dragobete”, an ancient version of Valentine’s Day, minus (Hallmark) cards, plus flowers. Interestingly, this holiday would have long disappeared from the collective memory if it hadn’t been for the quite commercially imported Valentine’s Day, which caused a reaction in certain circles – so they rediscovered good old Dragobete, polished him up and made him sort of a competitor to St. Valentine.

We talked about him in more detail here, so right now just want to take the opportunity to wish you all a nice day and a Happy Dragobete! (read: “Drug-oh-bat-ey”, not “dragon beat”)
