Along with the traditional gift of chocolate candies, there’s one gift that has almost become a necessity on this day; that gift is a beautiful, lush bouquet of red roses.

 

Historically, the giving of flowers has been used to express emotions, which cannot be spoken. Red roses send a specific and fitting message of deep love and passion. The most popular amount, a dozen red roses, is said to mean “be mine” and “I love you” according to Wikipedia.

Some of the most romantic history comes from that of Roman mythology. Roses can be seen throughout, as they were sacred to Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. They are also closely linked with Cupid, as many know, who was the god of desire. With these romanticized myths comes the symbolism seen behind the gift of the rose today.
