Romanian Christmas Tree

on January 18, 2014

postcards2_2_4This awesome card shows my Romanian friend Marius’s office Christmas Tree which he helped decorate – it’s so pretty! But do you think it has enough baubles?! Romania places a special importance on music at Christmas time, with its own special genre called ‘colinda’. Whilst these songs are similar to Christmas carols and the lyrics speak of the nativity, many are thought to also have pagan origins. Fascinating!
