Valentine’s Day Roses
As Valentine’s Day approaches, many husbands and wives get ready
to celebrate this day of love with each other, often with a good meal, a little
too much wine and the sending of Valentine’s roses to say how
they really feel love for each other. No matter how many times routine is
practiced and carried out, neither of them will get bored of it as it is an
expression of love and a very enjoyable day for both.
Roses are a great way of saying how a person feels for a loved one.
Unlike going on dates to fancy restaurants and a night at the movies,
intentions and meanings behind roses are very clear — they are a simple
expression that the person giving the roses has a lot of feelings for the
person receiving the flower.
Roses have been around since the dawning of man possibly even
longer. There are many stories that roses are featured in, and most of the time
the roses a symbolic part in the story. One such tale involves Cleopatra who
scattered her room with roses and rose petals on the night that her lover was due to come over. The idea behind this
action was to make sure that every time he smelt a rose he would always think
of Cleopatra, and this apparently worked as he was wild for her from then on.
Roses are thought to have some mystical power that induces love
and feelings in those who smell and receive them. Rose petals are often
scattered around hotel rooms and or baths where the mood is supposed to be one of love
and romance, and a deep crimson of roses can sometimes suggest eroticism and
sex. Roses were shown as a more sexy side of the female persona in the recent
film American Beauty where the female lead was imagined to be covered in rose
petals as a signifier of his sexual desires to be with her.
The fact is that roses are a really nice gift to be given. One of
the best ways to receive a bunch of flowers is in front of others, for the
sheer pleasure of knowing that they are jealous. Some women claim that they are
not interested in receiving flowers, and that they think this is a waste of
money that could be better spent on something that lasts longer or can be
enjoyed more, but this is a complete lie, as many women can think of nothing
better than being presented with a beautiful rich bouquet in front of their
work colleagues and friends in order to make them jealous. Roses also look
beautiful around the home and can be used to brighten up any room both with the
color of the flower and also the scent that is emitted from the leaves and
petals. Roses make an excellent gift for anybody needs a little cheering up or
reassurance of how people think about them, and they can truly work wonders on
a person’s heart and soul. Roses for Valentine’s Day are just perfect
