Oh, the history of roses on Valentine's Day is quite a romantic tale! You see, way back in ancient times, the goddess of love, Aphrodite, was often surrounded by beautiful roses. Fast forward a few centuries to the Middle Ages, and the rose became a symbol of secret love in the courtly love tradition.
But it was during the Victorian era when the rose really came into its own as a symbol of love and emotion. People began using different colored roses to send secret messages to their loved ones. For example, a red rose meant "I love you" and a white rose meant "I'm pure and innocent."
And now, on Valentine's Day, the tradition of giving and receiving roses is still going strong. Red roses are the most popular flower given on this special day, and they continue to symbolize love and romance. So, if you're planning to give someone special a rose on Valentine's Day, you're definitely in good company!
