Valentine’s Day has always been the lovers’ day and red is the symbolic color of this feeling: let’s find out why
Here we are, the day dedicated to all lovers has arrived: it’s Valentine’s Day!
February 14 is the day that the day dedicated to love and feelings is celebrated everywhere in the world.
Why exactly this day?
Although there is no certainty, we can immediately exclude that St. Valentine has a particular role.
In short, it should not be confused with a sort of Cupid who shoots arrows at the hearts of lovers.
Most likely the choice falls on this day because in ancient Rome the Lupercalia were celebrated, the festival dedicated to fertility.
Having ascertained this, there has always been one color in particular that has always been combined with love and passion: red.
Why, however, is this color associated with this feeling and why does this combination happen so spontaneously?
Red is a beautiful color, the first of the rainbow.
It is scientifically proven that red is the first color that is perceived by the eyes of children.
Since its origins it has symbolized love, exuberance, sentiment, passion.
It represents the passionate love that warms us from within and that gives us the impulse to give ourselves totally to the person we want.
The combination of color leads us to think of red roses, hearts that are reproduced on romantic cards up to the red light districts: emotion finds many variations in red, from the purest love, the romantic one to the passionate one, overwhelming.
