THE HISTORY OF Birth Flowers

For centuries, people around the world have been giving flowers to celebrate special occasions. Birth flowers have been around for a long time and are known throughout the world. Many believe birth month flowers originated as far back as the Roman empire when people first began celebrating their birthdays. These celebrations included decorating the altars of Roman gods with flowers. Often the most popular or readily available flowers were also given as gifts to those born in that month. Eventually, each flower became known for a particular month, and the tradition continued. In the Victorian era, meanings were attributed to flowers as a way to communicate a message without speaking out loud. These meanings are super interesting to look at today. Some even say they connect with your personality, like the concept of zodiac signs.

WHY TWO Birth Flowers

While not every birth month has two flowers, several months, such as January, April, and August, do. Although there is no official documented reason for this, it is believed that the birth flower and a secondary flower because different cultures associated certain flowers with a particular month. This is similar to the way that some people have a zodiac star sign and a Chinese Zodiac sign. Not all cultures agree on which flowers correspond to which months; some flowers aren’t as available in different regions. A great example of this is the birth flower for the month of January, which is the Carnation which is native to the Mediterranean, and Snowdrop, which comes from snowy regions in Europe and the Middle East, while the birth flower for the month of March is Daffodil and Jonquil.

Birth flowers have been around for many generations. They are historically the most popular flower designated for each month and usually tie into the season when they bloom. Many flowers also have cultural or religious associations from ancient times. For example, the hawthorn was known as Mary’s Flower of May.

In our lives today, birth flowers are a wonderful way to mark an occasion, from birthdays to marriages to funerals. They are also great if you are struggling to find a gift, as a simple bouquet of birth month flowers makes it more thoughtful.
