What the fuck is a birth flower?

So I am up late with my little and scrolling through Tik Tok and come across one with tattoo artists discussing what they would never want to tattoo again. One of them said birth flowers so of course I now jump down a birth flower rabbit hole and I am going to take you all with me.

So what is a birth flower? Well it is a tradition that supposedly started in Rome around the time first birthday celebrations began ( I will further research that claim another day if I don’t forget). Ancient Romans would decorate the alters of the Roman gods with flowers and present flowers has gifts. The flowers were given unique meanings around the eighteenth century in england. Similiar to birthstones and Zodiac signs they are unique and highlight our unique differences (though lets be honest sometimes these descriptions are not fully accurate).

In case you are curious here are the birth flowers:
January- Carnations and Snow Drops
Feburary- Violets and Primrose
March- Daffodil and Jonquil
April- Daisy and Sweet Pea
May- Lily of the Valley and Hawthorne
June- Rose and Honeysuckle
July- Larkspur and Waterlily
August- Gladiolus and Poppy
September- Aster and Morning Glory
October- Marigold and Cosmos
November-  Chrysanthemum
December- Narcissus (specifically Paperwhite) and Holly

Random side notes I had forgotten there was a genus of flower called Narcissus, and ANY gender can like flowers and that should be normalized. Flowers not just a “girl thing”.
