Valentine’s day starts with Rose Day, celebrated on 7th February. It is all about giving a beautiful bouquet of roses to your partner to express your love. Have you ever wondered why only roses and not any other flower? Well, roses have always been a symbol of love, peace, and affection. In western culture, the importance of red roses dates back to Greek mythology. There is a common belief that the red rose was created with the tears and blood of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Since then, this beautiful flower has been an emblem of timeless romance. So, you can express your true emotions by giving a classic rose to your loved ones on this rose day.
