Happy Valentine’s Day from Calyx Flowers

Red Long Stemmed Roses with vase

Valentine’s Day means flirty cards, decadent chocolates, and pink and red hearts galore, but it hasn’t always been celebrated this way. What is now considered a romantic holiday holds deep, traditional roots. Each country tends to celebrate differently, and while traditions hold fast, they vary wildly all over the world. For example, in Japan, women are expected to give chocolates to men, while in Finland, the day is a celebration of friendship.

An ancient Eastern European proverb states that “Saint Valentine brings the keys of roots,” which may be one reason why flowers and plants have always been a part of this love-centric holiday. Flowers are a sign of fertility, love, and marriage, so it is no wonder gifting flowers on this heartfelt day has always been popular. This tradition lives on even as Valentine’s Day shifted away from its religious roots to focus on appreciating others in your life and showing love.
