If you know any Romanian women, then you have to become familiar with the Mărțișor holiday on 1 March. The little snowdrop is the floral symbol of this holiday which celebrates friendship, and moreso the appreciation of women.

the TTS is wrong (reported), the Ro word has 3 syllables: ghi-o-cel, the last is stressed, but the „oh” in the middle must be clearly pronounced
