In the countryside, Dragobete is celebrated with some of the most charmin old traditions, some include the follwing: Between girlfriends, a bouquet of blessed basil is gifted. The friend receiving the bouquet, must put it under her pillow and sleep over it. It is believed that throughout the night, Dragobete visits your dream showing you the man to marry.
