Roses are red, violets are blue, a Valentine’s gift is long overdue.

The rose sale is an annual event at Carlmont that takes place during the two weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day and gives students a cheaper alternative to spending the average  $136. ASB’s sophomore class president and vice president Lance Liong and Noah Camerino are in charge of the logistics behind the sale.

“Events such as the rose sale are very important to Carlmont because they bring together different groups of people and create the sense of community we aspire to have,“ Liong said.

Each rose comes with a letter written by the person who bought it and is passed out during third period on Valentine’s Day.

Riya Gupta, a sophomore who bought a rose for a friend, said, “I think when you get a rose it can really make Valentine’s Day that much more special because you get the rose in front of the entire class and it makes you feel remembered.”

Roses aren’t just for couples; friends often want to show their love and appreciation for each other as well.

Sophomore Elise Watcha and Nicole Yeo planned to get roses as Valentine’s Day gifts for their close friends.

“It’s a fun way to show your friends how important they are to you, and it’s cute to get something in class, and they mean a lot to me so I thought it would be cool to have them get something on Valentine’s Day,” Watcha said.

The rose sales also bring more excitement to Valentine’s Day with the prediction of whether or not you will get a rose, and who got it for you.

“I think the rose sale is a cool idea, and it’s definitely nice and good anticipation because you wonder if you’re going to get one,” Watcha said.

Valentine’s Day is a day full of giving where people show their love for one another through roses, chocolates, cards and much more.

“We hope students are given the chance to show their peers how much they care for one another,” Liong said.
