Roses, Roses, Roses

Sunday, July 11, 2010

When I was in high school, teenage years, I used to witness every boys courting a girl, giving them flowers and most of the time, red roses. I wonder then why red roses? Does it require that when you are courting and giving flower to a girl, it must be a rose? And why do girls feel "kilig" when they were given one? hahaha, why am I asking? Because I did not experienced it. Poor me.

Lovely roses, isn't it? What color of roses do you want? For me, I'll go of course for the red and pink roses. Anyways, do you wonder why roses are said to be symbol of love. Do you have any idea? Well let me tell you this:

Rose: The perfect love symbol because they represent all things sensual, sacred, pure and romantic. In ancient Greece and Rome the rose was sacred to Aphrodite (Venus) and was her emblem of beauty - it was said to grow from the blood of Adonis. In the Western traditions the Rose is a symbol of passion, desire, voluptuousness, and physical perfection. The Rose is also a common symbol of eternal life and resurrection. The Rose is also connected to the goddess Hecate, Dionysus and the three Graces. from:whatsyoursign

Every color has its symbols, so if ever you received one, take note. And to all the guys out there, if you are giving a rose to girl, just look for the appropriate one and that she could appreciate.
