What Do Balloons Symbolize?
Balloons are just plain fun. They show off cheer and joy. But underneath the apparent, balloons have meanings deeper on the soul level.
Balloons are largely symbolic of our goals, dreams, and aspirations. Balloons take flight in ways that we’d like to.
Balloons represent the need to let go. When we let go of a balloon filled with air it rises up into the sky, no longer tied down to the earth. This is exactly what the past is doing to us.
Balloons represent freedom as well. More specifically, the freedoms that we experience from obtaining our goals or letting go of the past.
Where Do Balloons Come From?
Modern-day balloons as we know them are made out of latex. Latex is a type of rubber. This type of rubber balloon was invented by the English scientist Michael Faraday in 1824. Before this time ballons did exist, however, they were made from the dried gull bladders of animals.
Once rubber balloons saw the mass production they were instantly popular. Before then, everyone wanted one and the beginning of the 20th century allowed them easy access. Balloons are still popular to this day with people spending millions annually on them for birthday parties, events, business promotions, and all types of celebrations.
