As winter comes to an end and spring begins, people all over the world are gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day, a festive holiday that celebrates Irish culture and traditions. While many associate the holiday with wearing green, the true story behind this beloved celebration lies in the luck behind the four-leaf clover.
Traditionally, the shamrock was the symbol of the holiday, representing the holy trinity. However, the rare four-leaf clover, which is a unique variation of the three-leaf clover, became associated with good luck in Irish culture. Some interpretations suggest that the other three leaves represent faith, hope, and love, while the fourth leaf is a true symbol of luck for those who are fortunate enough to find it.
Everyone loves getting Valentine Flowers, but it can be a real bummer when that bouquet you received from your significant other begins drooping after just a few days. However, there are a few ways to preserve those flowers for a few extra days:
Put Cut Flowers in the Refrigerator
Nobody is marveling at the beauty of your bouquets overnight, so stick them in the refrigerator! Like putting your fruits and veggies in the fridge keeps them fresher longer, the same goes for your flowers. Think about it – florists tend to store their flowers in large fridges, so why wouldn’t the same concept work for you? Clean out an area of your fridge and keep your bouquet fresh for up to four days longer than a non-treated bouquet!
Drop A Penny in the Flower Vase
Copper is a known antibacterial agent, and the bacteria that multiplies in the water is a contributor to the breakdown of cut flowers. Simply putting a penny in the vase protects the flowers from some of the bacteria, keeping them fresh for longer. Pairing this method with the refrigerator, your flowers will stay fresher for days.

Imagine a scenario such as this: your valentine is hard at work on Valentine’s Day when a delivery driver opens the door and delivers a box to her colleague’s desk. She looks on in excitement and a bit of envy as her colleague opens the box and begins pulling out roses one-by-one, before arranging them in the accompanying vase. It’s Valentine’s Day, do you really want your valentine assembling their roses at work? Continue reading
