Valentine?s Day is a celebration of Love. As with many days that we commemorate, this special day has it?s roots in history, legends and folk traditions. It evolved with each age and location. Each country has it?s own name, traditions and commemorations for Valentine?s Day. ?In the USA, the day has evolved into a day of sending cards, chocolates and, of course, flowers.
It is often declared a ?Hallmark? holiday because of the amount of cards sent specifically on that day. Interestingly, paper Valentines, mass produced with suggested sentimental verses, began in England in 1797. Mass production in the USA had local roots. ?Valentines of embossed paper lace were produced and sold shortly after 1847 by?Esther Howland?(1828?1904) of?Worcester, Massachusetts. The practice evolved again from exchanging cards to exchanging all sorts of gifts – most commonly among them – FLOWERS.
Though not commonly thought of these days, each flower has a meaning – from the sender to the recipient. Here we share meanings of some of the most popular with you:
