Why Roses are Romantic ?

Why Roses are RomanticWhy Roses are Romantic ? Red roses can be the visual symbol of many things just by their presence. Red roses have been used to recognize courage, respect, and prosperity. Just the color red is a symbol of passion and deep emotion that’s been recognized as such for centuries.

According to scientists, the rose has been in existence for 35 million years. Today there are more than 30,000 varieties. We believe that the deliberate cultivation of roses started about 5,000 years ago.

But according to Greek mythology, it was Aphrodite who gave the rose its name, and it was Chloris, the goddess of flowers, who created it.

One day while Chloris was in the forest, she found the lifeless body of a beautiful nymph. A wrong had been done, so to right this wrong, Chloris enlisted the help of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who gave her beauty. Then, Dionysus, the god of wine, was asked to help, and he gave her a sweet scent. Then the three Graces got into the act and gave Chloris charm, brightness, and joy. Zephyr, the West Wind, wanted to help, so he blew away the clouds so that Apollo, the sun god, could shine and make the flower bloom. And that, according to Greek mythology, is how the rose came to be.

I like the Greek mythology theory much better than the scientific theory. Roses are romantic, not scientific!

Roses have been used around the world in every culture as symbols of one thing or another, but red roses are the traditional symbol of love. Other color roses have various meanings, but the only thing you really need to remember is that if you send her red roses, she will know that you love her!
