February 12 2007 Middle Eastern Culture Newsletter
Growing up, Valentine's Day was always a fun family holiday, so with the holiday coming up I couldn't resist writing about something related to the holiday, even though it's a Western holiday. But don't worry, it's truly about Middle Eastern culture.
Roses - The Middle East Connection
The rose is well known as a symbol of love in Western culture, but did you know that both the rose and the language of flowers came to the West from or via the Middle East?
More About Roses
I wrote this second article on some of the fun and interesting sites I found in researching this, this is not as focused on Middle Eastern culture and includes some things that are just fun. If you are intrigued by the language of flowers or inspired to buy roses after learning about their Middle Eastern origins, this is the place to find out more!
Speaking of Valentine's Day, the editor of the Dogs site has some very cute Valentine's Day and Love postcards.
I figured we all needed a break after two weeks of studying the Hebrew alphabet, but I am planning more Middle Eastern language articles in the future since they seem to be popular and I like languages. Speaking of article topics, if there is anything you'd particularly like to see an article on, please let me know!
Please visit middleeasternculture.bellaonline.com for even more great content about Middle Eastern Culture. To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Middle Eastern Culture located here -
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
