Some Misunderstood Meaning of Roses

Roses are beautiful flowers that have many different meanings. Roses represent love, appreciation, and friendship. The color of a rose can also add to its meaning. For example, red roses are often given as a sign of love, and yellow roses signify friendship.

Roses are popular because of their beauty and also their unique aroma. The fragrance of a rose can vary depending on the variety, but all roses have a sweet, floral scent.

Unfortunately, varying social contexts infer different connotations for roses, despite their use in events like graduations, Valentine's Day, and Mother's Day. In some cases, roses have even symbolized hatred.

The thorned stem of the rose is also significant, as it can represent both the love and pain that comes with relationships. Whether given as a sign of affection or appreciation, roses are sure to make any occasion special.

Misunderstandings can arise when gifting roses, especially in Malaysia. For example, how do you give your sister-in-law roses at her graduation without unintentionally sending the wrong message?

One misunderstanding about roses is that they are only for special occasions. It's simply not true! Roses can be gifted for any occasion, whether it's a birthday, an anniversary, or just to say "I love you."

Another misunderstanding is that roses are only given to women. While it's true that women do tend to receive more roses than men, there are no hard and fast rules about who can and cannot receive them. Roses can be given to anyone, regardless of gender.

The meaning of roses can also vary depending on the number of roses given. For example, a single rose is often given as a sign of love, while a dozen roses is a traditional way to say "I'm sorry."
