From where it all started 

The custom of sending a love letter/card and flowers known as valentines developed first in modern England and soon spread throughout the English-speaking world in the 19th century. By the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the customs were followed in other countries too. In Italy, there is the custom of giving Saint Valentine's Keys to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver's heart". The western trend entered India around 1992 via commercial TV and radio channels. There has been a sharp change in Public Display of Affection (PDA) since the Middle Ages.

The sonnet "Roses are red" belongs to Edmund Spenser's epic The Faerie Queene which was introduced as late as 1590;

“She bath'd with roses red, and violets blew,

And all the sweetest flowers, that in the forest grew.”

While the modern cliché Valentine's Day poem can be found in Gammer Gurton's Garland; a 1784 collection of English nursery rhymes.


“The rose is red, the violet's blue,

The honey's sweet, and so are you.

Thou art my love and I am thine;

I drew thee to my Valentine:

The lot was cast and then I drew,

And Fortune said it shou'd be you.”


Beautiful, isn’t it? Well you can also bring the red of the rose and blue of the violet by knowing What to Wear on Valentine’s Day basis your Zodiac Sign!
