According to legend, Dragobete is the son of the old woman Dochia. For Moldovans, Dragobete is the god of love, like Cupid or Eros. He became the protector of the love of those who meet on February 24th, a day also considered the “engagement” of birds. During Dragobetele, birds mate and start building their nests. Just like birds, to ensure being loved throughout the year, girls and boys aspire to meet their beloved during Dragobetele.
