It’s the month of Valentines and 14th February is Valentine’s Day. Just as marriage celebrations start off almost a week before the D-Day, so does the ‘wooing’ for the valentine. The lucky ones who sport a bank balance, need not fret about the cost of a pretty bunch of roses and those who are not yet working, can start saving their pocket money in order to put their love into expression in different ways. Do remember, a single red rose may do the same trick as a whole bunch of them. So, you don’t have to go overboard.
The significance of the red rose as a symbol of passion, goes back in history to Greek and Roman iconography, which depicted Aphrodite or Venus, the Goddess of Love with a red rose.
The Rose Day date 2020 is 7th February and with it begins the much-awaited Valentine's week. Needless to say, those in love give red roses to their loved ones on this day. Red colour denotes love, romantic ‘thoughts’, passion, and desire. By giving a red rose, a person expresses his/her love for you. If you accept the rose, then it means that you share the same feelings. This is why it is said that the world looks ‘rosy’ to people who are in love!
If you are still waiting for a 'yes' from your dream partner, then gift them pink roses as this would signify that you still love them and who knows they might answer with a slight nod in affirmative.
Yellow roses are more to do with friendships and are usually sent along with get-well cards. You may present them to the friends who made your life a heaven out of hell!
This rose day, express your gratitude by gifting white roses. Pure white roses symbolize a new beginning (While taking marriage vows) or a farewell (On someone’s death). They are more formal in nature and are more to do with respect.
So, different coloured roses are used to express the different phases of love. Be careful while choosing the colour of the roses that you present to your loved one, so that you don't send a wrong message across.
It has been rightly said -
“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck”-Emma Goldman
And therefore, a beautiful bouquet of red roses may have the same effect as a trip to the Bahamas with your beloved and that too, at a very minuscule expense.
In case you and your loved one are on a sulk mode then the Rose Day 2020 would be the best time to make up with a simple token and gesture of love… a red rose!
“If you really screw up, send roses” -Letitia Baldrige.
