Flowers have been a longstanding Easter tradition in Christian culture with their fresh, vibrant colors and frequent new buds representing the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In addition to their religious symbolism, flowers also represent the new life that comes with spring and the anticipation of warmer weather and sunnier skies. While these are two of the reasons that flowers make popular Easter gifts, a few others are outlined below.
Flowers Represent Feelings
Though it may not be widely known, most species of popular flowers have their own unique meanings associated with them. Each color of rose, for instance, is known to stand for a particular emotion or sentiment with red for love being the most famous. Easter flowers also have emotional associations that prompt the reason behind many a colorful gift.
