According to popular legends red rose is considered to be a favorite flower of Venus – the Roman mythological Goddess of Love and Beauty. Hence the red Rose came to be associated with love and romance.
Historians believe that the tradition of giving red rose on Valentine’s Day became popular in the 1700s when Charles II of Sweden introduced the Persian custom of “the language of flowers” to Europe.
Books giving details about meanings of particular flowers were published which demonstrated to people how entire conversations could be carried out using just the flowers.
Poets and romantics at heart also eulogized red rose as a symbol of love, passion and beauty that helped to create strong association of rose with love and Valentine’s Day.
It’s a great idea to decorate your homemade Valentine gift box with handmade red flowers.

Legends influencing Valentines Day Celebration in Middle Ages:
One very popular legend of Valentine’s Day states that the festival originated from the Feast of Lupercalia – a fertility festival celebrated in mid February by ancient Roman during pagan times. The festival paired young boys and girls through a lottery system who would fall in love and marry.
Another legend states that a priest called St Valentine lived in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Valentine defied the orders of Claudius order that banned engagements and marriages in Rome and secretly married young boys and girls. Saint Valentine was executed by Claudius on February 14, 498 AD.

Did you know that…
Origami is paper folding. The word comes from the Japanese ‘oru’ meaning ‘to fold’ and ‘kami’ meaning ‘paper’. It is generally regarded as Japanese, although it is very likely that other cultures independently evolved their own paper folding traditions.
Origami probably is as old as paper is! There was certainly a tradition in Japan (and probably also in China and Spain) as far back as the 16th century. This was likely to be the simple traditional models handed down from parent to child.
Special Origami paper is available which has the particular qualities that make it more suitable for folding, but almost any paper will do.
