Language of love ..Valentine's Day
No matter what country or lifestyle or age, the language of love comes though the same – beautifully filled with romance (and sometimes candy, flowers and cards).
Known to many as Valentine's Day, Feb. 14th’s beginning are not as easy to come by as the languages of love are, such as out first two - Mi aime jou, Creol, and Ta gra agam ort, Gaelic. But the legends behind the start of this romantic day, some will argue, are those made of love, and lest us not forget a kindly cleric named Valentine who died more than a thousand years ago.
Most romantic holidays ..Valentine's Day
It's one of the most romantic holidays of the year, filled with flowers, heart shaped chocolates, and romantic cards. And with Valentine's Day falling on a Monday, local flower shops are gearing up for a busy day. " This has been the biggest one in about three years, it's the first time it's fallen on a weekday in the last three years so we're pretty excited about it" said Rachelle Nyswonger, owner of Flowers By Rachelle.
Local flower shops are packed with everything from specially ordered orchids to bouquets boasting an assortment of flowers and colors. Out of the 15-billion dollars Americans are expected to spend this Valentine's Day, 1.7 of that will go toward flowers alone. And worldwide, more than 50-million roses will be given out, making it this year's flower of choice. " This year it seems to be more than ever the dozen roses, and red, red is the big color this year" said Nyswonger.
And if roses are on your shopping list, how about a 3'9" rose, Flowers By Rachelle can help you with that one.
