Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a federal holiday celebrated on November 11th. The reason for this date is that in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, all major hostilities of World War I were formally ended.  The day was originally termed Armistice Day and was created to celebrate the service of all U.S. military veterans. President Woodrow Wilson gave an eloquent speech in 1919 during which he  commended the men and women of the United States military. A brief excerpt from his speech goes as follows “To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations”.

Armistice Day and Remembrance Day are celebrated in other countries as a remembrance to the end of World War I. However in 1954, Veterans Day became the official name for our United States day to honor our military men and women. Veterans Day differs from Memorial Day. While both days honor our military, Memorial Day is designated to honor those who died while fighting for our country. Veterans Day is designated to honor all of the military folks who have served our country.

Did you know that Veterans Day has no apostrophe? Often you will see it referred to as Veteran’s or Veterans’ Day. While that might make perfect sense, actually the day is designated to honor all military veterans. Therefore the singular meaning denoted by an apostrophe does not apply. On this special day why not send a delicious basket of sweets from Flowerama Columbus to that special veteran in your life. It will mean so much to them that you took the time to recognize the sacrifices they made in defending our great Nation!

Flowerama Columbus has as culture that promotes hard work, loyalty and dedication. The same traits that are inherent in a good leader. Perhaps the thing we are most proud of is our people. There are many who have worked for us for more than a decade, and one that has been with us since our first year of operation. The contributions they have made to our success over the years are immeasurable. Our ability to draw some of the most talented, hard working people in the community is one of our greatest assets. We are truly humbled by their efforts. We also have a great selection of potted green plants that you might prefer as a gift for a military veteran in your life.
