one of the first flowers to emerge from the earth after winter. Christian tradition associates the snowdrop with candlestick,
February 2, the day of purification
of the Madonna. Furthermore, a legend tells that Eve and Adam, once expelled from the Earthly Paradise, were transported to a cold, dark and
where it was always winter. Eva was soon taken by despair and regret, she did not accept the idea of living in those conditions; an angel took pity on her, it is said, that she took
a handful of snowflakes, blew them and ordered them to turn into buds once they hit the ground. Eva, at the sight of the snowdrops, gained strength and was revived.
Snowdrops are the symbol of life and hope.
