Legend behind Valentine's Day Roses
There is an interesting tale behind the legend of
Valentine's Day Rose. It is said that once a beautiful
maiden by the name of Rodanthe was pursued by a number
of impassioned suitors. In their desperate pursuit the
lovers broke the doors of Rodanthe's house. This enraged
goddess Diana. She turned Rodanthe into a flower and her
suitors into thorns.
According to a popular myth in Rome, Cupid was carrying
a vase of sweet nectar to the Gods on Mount Olympus and
some nectar spilled on the ground. From the spot where
the nectar fell emerged the beautiful Rose flower.
Also, if you rearrange the letters of the word ‘rose, it
comes out to Eros - the God of Love. Red roses are also
considered to be a symbol of love and passion and the
