Holidays Of Romania - Great Time To Enjoy

Feb 21, 2008
Everybody loves holidays. They are a welcome break from the drudgery of daily chores and busy work schedules. Holidays are when you get the time to refresh and revitalize your system, enjoy a quiet period of rest or indulge in a hobby, get on with that unfinished job at home or just have a nice time with your near and dear ones. That is what the Romanians do on their holidays listed below.

The days declared official holidays are different from weekend holidays, because they can be on any day of the week. However, like weekends, they are not free days for everyone. Public utilities, like municipal entities, public transport, police stations, etc. as well as eateries and factories with a non-stop production process remain open even on such days.

The Work Code in Romania specifies the following holidays at present. The 1st and 2nd of January are holidays on account of the New Year. Easter Holidays can be in either April or May depending on your religious requirement.

Furthermore 1st day of May is the International Work Day and 1st December is Romania's National Day. On that date, they celebrate the union between Transylvania and the Romanian Kingdom, which led to the foundation of modern Romania. This event took place in 1918. To continue, Christmas days are on 25th and 26th December, when everybody gets together with beloved members of the family and celebrate these special days.

The 24th of January commemorates the unification of Moldavia and Walachia, a very important occasion in the history of evolution of Romania as a nation state under the leadership of Alexandru Ioan Cuza as the leader of both the provinces.

A special day in the list of Romanian holidays is March 8, when it is celebrated women's day. It is a day when kids in schools express their love for their mothers and female teachers, when husbands offer flowers and presents to their wives and women usually celebrate their day having a girls' party somewhere.

In Romania, heroes who fought in different armed conflicts are celebrated on Ascension Day and on June 1 it is celebrated Children's day. On this occasion children take part in different competitions, like drawing contests or sport competitions corresponding to their ages. The national flag's day is celebrated on the 26 of June. By the way, the colours of the Romanian flag are red, yellow and blue. Red stands for the blood spilled by heroes, yellow stands for the rich summer crops and blue stands for hope in a better destiny.

National Anthem Day is observed on 29th June. The Romanian national anthem begins with "De steapta-te, romane!" It means "Romanians, fight for your rights!". The present constitution of Romania was adopted on the 8th of December, 1991, and the day is commemorated as the Constitution Day.

Finally, two special holidays for young people are celebrated on 24 February and on 1 March. The first one is the equivalent of Valentine's Day and it is called Dragobetele, and the second one is a special day when children and men offer "martisoare", some tiny talismans, to the people they love, but especially to women and girls.
