Mucenici - a sweet Romanian tradition|
By Adina Dosan on March 9, 2011
Eversince I was a child I have been anxiously expecting this day of March 9th. It's religious significance wasn't of so much importance for me back then, although my Mom and my Grandparents were always telling me about it. What mattered to me on every March 9th was only the big pot with a sweet noodle soup in it which I would always find on the stove when I woke up.
