Perfect Flowers For Celebrating Thanksgiving

Photo via: julie (Flickr)

All around the world throughout history, different civilizations have had festivals of thanksgiving, generally revolving around the harvest which often occurred in fall. The first Thanksgiving in the United States in 1621 was also a type of festival celebrating the harvest and took place between September 21 and November 11. It is not surprising then that the most popular Thanksgiving flowers tend to be traditional fall flowers, or flowers that feature fall colors, and bloom at the same time as the harvest. One thing is certain about the different thanksgivings through time and cultures: they always have been a time to celebrate with friends and family.

Popular Flowers To Honor Those Who Have Served Our Country On Memorial Day

This year, as you celebrate the Memorial Day weekend with barbecues and time off spent with family, don't forget to honor the fallen soldiers in your life. Memorial Day is yet another holiday with a fascinating history. As early as ancient times, Greeks and Romans decorated graves of the dead with flowers, and laying wreaths on graves signaled high honors. Memorial Day as we know it was formerly known as Decoration Day and began during the Civil War; it is said that Southern women were decorating the graves of fallen Confederate soldiers as early as 1861. By the twentieth century, Memorial Day honored all fallen soldiers. Today, we still celebrate Memorial Day by putting flowers on the graves of our fallen soldiers who have fought for our freedom. Flowers for Memorial Day tend to be red, white, and blue, the colors of our country; here are twelve of the most popular.

6 Popular Flowers for Easter

Spring is here and Easter is just around the corner, and along with Easter comes the blooming of many beautiful spring flowers; maybe that why so many spring flowers are associated with Easter; however, some flowers are considered Easter flowers for deeper reasons. In my family, flowers were always a big part of the Easter celebration and I have always automatically associated the holiday with flowers. I never stopped to think about why certain flowers are always given and used for Easter-have you? Here are six popular flowers for Easter and some interesting history behind them.

1. Easter Lily

The quintessential Easter flower is of course the Easter lily. I remember bringing my grandmother a pot or bouquet of Easter lilies every Easter. Why is the Easter lily such a popular Easter flower? It does not naturally bloom at Easter time, after all. It turns out this flower is full of religious symbolism and there are many religious myths about it. The Easter lily bulb is said to represent Christ's tomb, while the flower emerging from it represents Christ's arising from the dead. The flower is symbolic of love, hope, and purity. There is a myth that lilies grew where drops of Christ's blood fell as he hung on the cross.

The 5 most Popular Flowers for Valentine's Day

Famous writer Emma Goldman once said "I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck", and I would have to agree with her, especially on Valentine's Day. For centuries giving flowers has been a way to communicate emotions. Red roses were believed to be the favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty, thus they became symbolic of love and passion. They became popular Valentines flowers in the 17th century and continue to be the most popular Valentines Day flowers today, but there are other flowers that make great Valentine's Day gifts as well.

Flowers: The Universal Language of Love

Roses

With 10 million, mostly red, sold each year on this holiday these flowers still hold strong. Roses excite the senses with their intoxicating scent, soft, velvety petals, and beauty-I don't think there is any gift more sensual than a rose. In the language of love, red roses symbolize passionate love, pink symbolize admiration and appreciation, and lavender symbolize enchantment and love at first sight; of course, there are many more colors, each with a different meaning.
