Saudi Arabia has banned red roses for Valentine's Day! According to Reuters, "The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has ordered florists and gift shop owners in the capital Riyadh to remove any items colored scarlet, which is widely seen as symbolizing love, newspapers said." Saudi authorities are trying to muzzle anything encouraging premarital relations between men and women, which are strictly forbidden by Saudi law. Well they're not allowed to look at roses, apparently, but uh, at least Saudi women are going to be allowed to drive soon! [Reuters]
