We all know that Cupid is a chubby cherub with bow and arrows which he shoots into people to make them fall in love. But do you know where the story started? The story of Cupid began as an ancient Greek myth (called Eros by the Greeks) later adopted by the Romans who changed the name. In Latin, the language of ancient Rome, the word "cupido" means desire.
Cupid's mother was Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. As a messenger of his mother, Cupid would shoot his arrows, tipped with gold. Those struck by the arrows would fall in love. Cupid often appears on Valentine cards and gift tokens holding bow and arrows.
The red rose was the favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. The color red stands for strong romantic feelings making the red rose the flower of love. Over 85% of the roses sent by FlowerDeliveryExpress.com for Valentine's Day will be the color red.
