The tradition of sending flowers on Valentine's day by Adele Rae Florists | Burnaby, Canada

Valentine's Day is a special occasion celebrated worldwide to honour and express love and affection between romantic partners and friends. One of the most popular ways to show love and affection on this day is by sending flowers.

 The history of sending flowers on Valentine's Day can be traced back to the ancient Roman history. During the festival of Lupercalia, which was celebrated in February, young men would draw the names of women from a jar and then pair off with them for the duration of the festival. They would often give gifts to their chosen women, being one of the most popular flowers.

Flowers have also been associated with love and romance in literature and art for centuries. In the Victorian era, it was common for men to send flowers to their loved ones as a way of expressing their feelings. Flowers were also used to deliver secret messages, with different types of flowers and floral arrangements having specific meanings. For example, red roses were a symbol of love and passion, while yellow roses were used to represent friendship.

Today, sending flowers on Valentine's Day is a beloved tradition that continues to be a popular way to express love and affection. Flowers are a timeless gift that can convey love, care, and true appreciation in a way that words alone cannot do. Whether you choose the classical bouquet of red roses or a more unique floral arrangement, flowers are a perfect way to show your love on Valentine's.
