In some schools, students may opt to purchase a flower and attach a note for that special friend, to be delivered by the office at lunchtime. My junior highschool started that tradition when I was in 8th grade. I remember secretly hoping at least one flower into existence. The girl in front of me was very popular. She received about 80 carnations- no joke! So many girls were envious of her, and some couldn't handle the visual proof that no one sent them a flower, so they secretly purchased their own to be delivered by a 'secret admirer.' In a sense, receiving no carnation was tantamount to no popularity. That secret desire to be appreciated and loved never goes away.
Ever since the 18th century, lovers have given flowers to their partners on Valentine's Day. Flowers are a beautiful way of telling a lady she is beautiful, and that she is appreciated. The clean, fresh, and fragrant scent of flowers reminds a lady of her special man even when he is not around. Today flowers are not only something women appreciate. Men like to receive Valentine's flowers and gifts too. If you are not a flower type person, there are many other choices to give and receive.
