Fantastic Selection of Valentines Flowers and Gifts in First 2016 Edition Of The Booker Flowers And Gifts Newsletter!
Hello and welcome to the February edition of our newsletter. This is our first opportunity to say Happy New Year to you all as January flew by for us with it being a very busy period. We have a lot of new stock in the shop and would love the opportunity to tell you all about our Valentines day specials.
Here are some interesting facts about Valentines day. The most popular theory about Valentine's Day origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn't want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor's daugter signing it "from your Valentine".
About 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year.
In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve".
The red rose was the favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Red roses are considered the flower of love because the color red stands for strong romantic feelings.
