TRANSLATION TO ENGLISH: WITH ALL THE HEART
-Why? asked ones.
-It´s difficult. We don´t know how to listen. Said others.
The days passed without a decision.
Then, the decision was taken by the own nature: It roared with hard a sad day in a far and poor country, that its pain touched all our hearts.
Paco, one of the little heart had da dady near the tragedy helping to those far and poor children. Between all, we thought we should send all our afection to all of them.
The little hearts had a reason to beat as one: "TO SEND A DESIRE OF LOVE AND PEACE TO ALL THE LITTLE HEARTS OF HAITI, THAT FAR AND POOR COUNTRY".
PABLO Y JUANITO
Once upon a time there was a happy village called El Toboso. All the children played in the park. They loved and respected each other.
One day, one of them called Paul began to discuss with his friend Joan. In that moment a dove appears and said them:
-"Hello, I am the Peace! Why do you fight? It is not necessary."
-Paul stole my toy that he gave me as a pressent yesterday. Said Joan.
-That is not true. Said Paul. - You are a liar.
The dove said the two boys:
- It is not necessary to insult. You must solve your problems speaking. You two should be nicer.
Joan and Paul continued fighting and discussing, then the dove proposed them to go to a country called "Guerrilandia".
When they arrived there, They were very frightened becasue all the peaple was fighting, discussing and quarreling, they pulled of the hair, lied and they only love themselves.
Then Paul said:
- I don´t want to be in this way. I would like all get on well with each other and I hope not to be in that situation.
After, the dove tool them to other country called "Fantasy". There all people loved and respect each other. The dove said them:
-Do you like this country? Why don´t you try to be more generous?
Then, the two boys noticed what they were doing wrong and that they should be nicer with the rest of the people to be happier.
Paul and Joan show the children of El Toboso the meaning of love and friendship.
Paul gave Joan the toy and Joan asked Paul if he wanted to play with him because it's better to play with a friend that to play alone.
And then, all the two friends understand the importance of friendship and getting on well with the rest of the people.
And this is the end of the story.

you revive love
in the people's hearts.
the birds came back
now, they are here,
in my country.
Dear Lady spring,
you bring flowers
that i like, forever.
They are luxuriant,
Oh yes! Like you.
Dear lady spring,
because with you
I would play,
run and sing

The name Mărţişor is the diminutive of the name for March (Martie, in Romanian), and thus literally means "little" or "dear March". It is also the folk name for this month.
Mărţişor, marţ and mărţiguş are all names for the red and white (or black and white, also blue and white) string, from which usually a small decoration is tied, and which is offered by people on the 1st day of March. Giving this Talisman to other people is an old custom, and it is believed that the one who wears the red and white string will be powerful and healthy for the year to come. It is also a symbol of the coming spring. Usually, women wear it pinned to their blouses for the first 12 days of this month, until other certain spring celebrations, or until the bloom of certain fruit-trees. In some regions, a gold or silver coin is hanged from the string, which they wear it around the neck. After wearing it for a certain period of time, they buy red wine and sweet cheese with the coin, according to the belief that their faces would remain beautiful and white as cheese, and rubicund as the red wine, for the entire year.
The Mărţişor is a talisman (amulet) made of knitted threads (wool, cotton, or silk). Nowadays, the most popular version of it is made of red and white threads, but in some regions it is still made of black and white, or even blue and white.(sursa Wikipedia)
Today , the school boys offered girls amulets.
Great joy on both sides. Each girl received many amulets 16 (number of boys in class). They wear martisoarele the entire month of March, then Martisor will be caught by the branches of a fruit tree. It is said that this tree will bring plenty of people in the house.
It is further said that if someone puts a wish while hanging Martisor tree, it will come true at once.
