Flower Petals

Young girls play a game where they pull the petals off of flowers using an alternate saying of “he loves me” and “he loves me not” with each petal pulled.
Many believe that the game originated specifically with daisies, which were believed to have grown where the Virgin Mary’s tears fell after the death of her son, Jesus. The original game of “he loves me” or “he loves me not,” therefore, was meant to determine if the woman in question had found favor with Christ.
