Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday originating from Dacian times and celebrated on February, the 24th. Specifically, Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia, which related to spring arrival and the end of the harsh winter. The day is dedicated to love and fertility. Tradition tells us that those who do not celebrate this day will go without being loved all during the upcoming year. But for those who do celebrate, they will be in love each and every day of the current year.
