That is another way to mark calendar’s days in our school, season by season.I have tried to make a short trip with photos and drawings from my small kids from “Dimitrie Anghel”School-Cornesti-Miroslava-Iasi-Romania.
Festivals provide wonderful opportunities for visitors to experience the amalgam of the people who make up this country ? whose Latin roots dating from the Roman Empire make it unique in East-Central Europe.The people refer to the month of September as “rapciune”, meaning the beginning of the cold period, but also “viniceriu”, because September remains the month of grapes.The month of October (called “Brumarel” in the folk tradition, as the hoarfrost begins now) announces the coming of the cold season and the works in that period consist especially in preparations for the winter. If the leaves of the trees get yellow and fall early, this means that the next year will be rich. If it rains a lot in October, the month of December will be windy and if there`s much hoarfrost or even snow, the weather in January will be fine.
The folk tradition refers to the month of November as “Brumar” or “Promorar”. In the Romanian language, the words “bruma” and “promoroaca” mean “hoarfrost”. It is the month when the hoarfrost can often be seen. In some folk poems, an interesting character can be found – he kisses the flowers, thus making them wither. November is also called the month of wines (“Vinar” or “Vincer”). The preparations for the winter season which have been begun in October become more and more intense in November, the month which ends the autumn. .
Harvest Day Festival (Ziua Recoltei) 14 OctoberAutumn harvesting is celebrated across the country with traditional festivals – many of them tracing their roots couple hundreds years ago. In romanian village, in every ethnographic region (Moldova,Transilvania,Tara Romaneasca),we celebrates the harvest in October with folk dances and rituals.
In holiday time students from”Dimitrie Anghel”School have visited their friends from “Titu Maiorescu”School and they have fall out some days together.That was a golden opportunity to him to learn new songs and games, to paint or to make new costumes by craped paper.

In Romania we have such antique and beautiful tradition in our region and is our duty to keep and to transmit them to the next generations.Ceramic pots are painted using natural obtained colors and they have different motifs, mainly geometrical, but there can also be found plants, birds and animals. The pottery can be used in alimentation, in decorative purposes, for various structures or for various ceremonies. The peasant house contains a wide variety of ceramics : pots, cruses, jugs, porringers, huge recipients where the food for religious ceremonies was cooked, vases, pans, skillets, statues, flutes, toys etc.The art of pottery is one of the most ancient Romanian crafts, as proved by the beautiful ceramic objects dating from the Neolithic era, the period of a blooming civilization and in that we learn our students about our hystory and life.
