Top Holiday Flower Sales
2. Mother’s Day
3. Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day used to be the top selling flower holiday but now it has been surpassed by Mother’s Day as #1.
The tradition of Mother’s Day began in England in the early 1600′s when “Mothering Sunday” or “Mid-Lent-Sunday” was celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent.
In 1907 Anna Jarvis asked her church to hold a service in memory of her mother and all mothers . Anna and her friends began a vigorous letter-writing campaign to create Mother’s Day. Congress finally passed legislation in 1914, declaring the second Sunday in May as Mother’s day.
