THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN TRADITIONAL AND MODERN RITUALS IN ROMANIAN CELEBRATIONS

Annals of the University of Craiova for Journalism, Communication and Management, 2017, vol. 3, issue 1, 85-94
This article is based on a meta-analytical method in order to observe the need of Romanians nowadays to understand better the traditional rituals in our country. Romanians, after 1989, became curious about other cultures and wanted to explore them instead focusing on their own tradition. However, in spite of this situation, in the present, Romania has started to get back to its roots, to understand the importance of preserving its traditions. People are seeking for traditions and rituals in the period of traditional Romanian celebrations. In order to do that, they have to know which parts of the regions from Romania are mostly based on traditions. In this case, I can say that Maramures and Bucovina which are considered the most desired in the Romanian celebrations period. Our society is in constant change, starting with the manifestation of the interest of the ordinary citizen regarding the stages from traditionalism to modernism. Our society keeps its traditional celebrations intact, but it fails to escape the influence of other cultures. Today, Romania has a stable culture with a strong nationalist sense, but it is flexible and open to new ideas or cultures. Thus, our country becomes a centre of cultural creation manifested through different traditional rituals.
