Romania is one of the few countries in the world where, in some geographical areas, people from the village still wear traditional costumes and on working days, not only during certain holidays. Romania is noted for an extraordinary variety of popular costumes.
At large, Romanian folk costumes can be divided into seven folkloric regions. In more detail, the Romanian folk costumes can be classified by ethnographic areas, the number of areas varying between 40 and 120, all depending on the person making the split and the criteria used.
The making of the Romanian folk costume started from raw materials produced in the peasant households but has evolved with the passage of time, representing today a true mastery both in obtaining and decorating fabrics and embroidery. The popular port has the same structure throughout the country but it differs from one region to another through details such as tailoring, shape and colour. The seven major folklore regions are:
Western plains: Lower Mureș Plain, Crișurii Plain (Black Crișul, White Crișul, Rapid Crișul), Lower Someșul Plain (Oașului Country)
Banat, comprising Lunca Timișului and Caraș-Severin.
The Romanian country, including Oltenia and Muntenia.
Lower Danube area, comprising Bărăgan, Dobrogea and southern Moldova.
Moldova, including Bessarabia, Bukovina and Transnistria.
Romanians from the Balkan peninsula, which in turn are divided into 4 subgroups:
Daco-Romanians along the Romanian borders: Cadrilater (Bulgaria), Timoc (northwestern Bulgaria and eastern Serbia), Vojvodina / Serbian Banat and in Ukraine (especially in Chernivtsi and Odesa regions).
Istroromans from Istria, Croatia.
Macedo-Romanians (or "Aromanians") from Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia.
The Meglenoromans of Greece and Macedonia.
Traditional holiday in our country, March Romanian is a specific contribution to the heritage of traditions and customs that joined the European Union. Christmas celebration traditions are among the finest in the year and although we all keep at least some of them, few actually know the origin of their role. Nativity is announced in our country through carols and carols start with the first morning of Christmas Eve are children and youth. They are welcomed by Christians with apples, nuts, pretzels.Înstruţat ox is a celebration of the summer solstice, or Midsummer held in New Pentecost. The central character was a stately-looking ox (carefully chosen for this purpose), adorned with bells, flowers and beautiful fabrics and was walked down the village street. Roman traditions are treasures that should not be forgotten or forsaken, nor changed by bartering with other habits imported from other countries.
