The Meanings of Flowers

Feb 04, 2012

Valentine’s Day is a day of celebrating love and friendship in many countries around the world. One of the most popular ways to express your feelings for someone is by giving a gift -- usually one made out of candy, chocolate or flowers.

Why flowers, you may ask? Well, that’s a good question! It turns out that certain types of flowers are tied to certain meanings. It began with the ancient Japanese practice of Hanakotoba, which means the “Language of Flowers”. Flowers were given certain code words so that people could secretly communicate how they felt about each other through their gifts. The practice was brought to Europe in the 1600’s when the idea of romantic love was really taking off, and it continues today!

Here’s a guide to the more popular Valentine’s Day flowers you can give your loved ones this year. (Or a guide to decoding the ones you get from a mysterious admirer.) And while you’re thinking about it, pick up some pink carnations for your mom on February 14th!

Okay lots of fandoms out there going up to these forum posts above but, tell your family plenty of nice things out there with the fandom you're in. If they don't like it, its their lost. Their opinion is their lost woopdedoo. But if they're all disgusted and trying to force you to """""live like a normal being"""""(Realize everyone's different and I doubt this would happen), dont mind to them. You be you. Whatever makes you happy and joyful about something.

tell your mom! Trust me I know. There was this one time I downloaded Roblox on my mom's computer. Once she found out, she got SUPER mad at me and banned me from downloading anything without her permission. A few months later, I asked if I could download Roblox again and she said yes. Totally tell your mom it is not worth it to keep a secret, especially from parents.
