AMMAN — The embassy of Romania will host its Open Gates Day on Saturday on the occasion of “Martisor”, a traditional celebration to mark the beginning of spring and its related symbols: respect for life, peace, human understanding and woman as a source of life and renewal.

To mark this occasion, women are offered flowers and small gifts — amulets, called “Martisor”.

The embassy invited Romanian women residing in Jordan to take part in the celebration between 10am and 6pm on Saturday at its premises: No. 35 Medina Munawara Street.
