As Valentine’s Day approaches, Carlmont’s sale of roses provides a nice way to show love and appreciation for both friends and lovers.

From Jan. 29 to Feb. 12, roses will be sold by the Associated Student Body in the lower quad. A single rose costs two dollars, while twelve roses can be purchased for 20 dollars. Roses purchased will be delivered on Feb. 13 to the recipient’s fourth period class attached with a personalized note, composed by the sender.

“I think one [rose] is enough, the gesture itself speaks volumes,” said sophomore Emily Rexer.

“It’s a nice way to tell a friend or that special someone that they are important to you,” said junior Catherine Schultz, one of the organizers of the event.

Taking the time and effort to send a friend a rose can show how much you appreciate them. While there are many other ways to show your gratitude, sending a rose can be a simple and effective.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be about celebrating with a spouse, getting gifts for friends can also be a fun way to celebrate.

“Through sending someone a rose, you can show affection,” said sophomore Kevin Shu.

Gifting roses to one’s significant other is one of many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. In flower language, red roses symbolize love or respect. Giving one’s spouse or significant other red roses can be a good way to symbolically tell them how much you care.

While there are many different ways to show appreciation and affection, sending a rose through Carlmont’s rose sale is a good idea to think of for this coming Valentine’s Day.
