The white carnations mean pure love. Due to what the white carnation represents, it is often used as one of the flowers in the bridal bouquet. The red ones mean true love. That is why red carnation is the flower for mothers who show true love to her children. The pink variety means deep affection which makes it an ideal flower gift for a special someone. Yellow, on the other hand, represents the feeling of disappointment, and the striped ones mean regret.


Another flower that is associated with the month of January is the snowdrop. Centuries ago, snowdrops were regarded flowers that bring bad luck because these were often seen in graveyards. But over the years, it was able to change its reputation and in contemporary times, snowdrops represent the feeling of beauty and hope.
