History Valentines Day
The holiday St Valentine's Day has roots in several different legends that have found their way to us through the ages. One of the earliest popular symbols of the Valentine's day is Cupid, the Roman god of love, who is represented by the image of a young boy with bow and arrow. Several theories surround the history of Valentine's Day. The history of giving your loved one Valentine's Day flowers comes from the old-fashioned custom of sending floral bouquets to pass on non-verbal messages. Introduced in the 18th century by Charles II of Sweden, each flower had a specific meaning attached to it, making it possible to have an entire conversation using only flowers. Today, people continue to send flowers on special occasions or to express sentiments of love and admiration. For retailers across the country, Valentine’s Day is more than just a little holiday to celebrate love. Consumer spending on Valentine’s Day gifts results in major retail sales, that help many businesses meet their bottom line each year. Most people or clients tend to buy the most expensive flowers on valentines day for their loved ones.
