RPG IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED IN SUPPORT OF EFFORTS TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
In most cultures, the 'New Year' is associated with rebirth and with hopes for peace and goodwill throughout the year. The carnation, a January birth flower, symbolizes those hopes. The carnation's natural color is a bright pinkish-purple (pictured), but cultivated colors include red, white, yellow, and green. Depending on its color, a carnation can convey a specific message. For example, a pink carnation conveys affection while a dark red carnation means deeper love. Notably, the red carnation is Ohio's state flower. (Interesting fact: carnations are sometimes used as flavoring agents in wines and beers.)
No matter the color, carnations broadcast warm and hopeful feelings as winter gives way spring.
