Roses For Your Grave

The symbol of the rose has many meanings. The beauty of the rose lead to it represent romance and love. As far back as ancient Egypt, the rose has been associated with mythological goddesses, such as Isis, Eros and Aphrodite. As Christianity grew, the rose came to represent first the blood and wounds of Christ, and later Mary, his mother.

Many legends also state that the scent or sight of roses will prevent  dead from rising and keep the undead – especially vampires – from approaching.
