Celebration Just Because
World Senior Citizen’s Day
President Ronald Reagan is credited with the creation of World Senior Citizen’s Day in 1988. He signed the formal proclamation on August 19, 1988. Upon his announcement of the official designation of National Senior Citizen’s Day he made these comments:
“For all that, they have achieved throughout their lives and for all that they continue to do, we owe our gratitude and sincere greetings to our senior citizens. We can show our gratitude and appreciation better by making sure our communities are good places. Age and maturity, places where older people can participate as much as possible and find the encouragement, acceptance, support and services they need to continue living a life of independence and dignity.”
Our senior citizens have contributed so much in their many years. This special day is an official way to honor their accomplishments and to raise awareness for the care of the aging. The loving devotion and role modeling these wonderful seniors have provided to their children and other young people they mentored is a lasting blessing.
National Kiss and Make Up Day
On August 25th, you have the perfect opportunity to end any arguments with someone. And if the someone happens to be your significant other, perhaps a bit of kissing might be in order. From a purely scientific and chemical perspective, studies have shown the kissing releases serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. These are other wise know as feel good elixirs and can do wonders for a relationship that has been under the stress of a disagreement.
Kiss and Make Up Day was founded and promoted by Jacqueline Milgate. She was from Hilton New York and had a passion for wanting to see people with healthy and happy relationships. Creating such a special day as this would provide loved ones a day to focus on patching any wounds in their relationship.
In addition to loved ones, relationships of a more casual nature are extremely important as well. Whether co-workers, teammates, college dorm roommate or just a great friend, sincere and heartfelt apologies can go along way to break a silence and start the healing process. Of course a beautiful flower arrangement, green plant or basket of treats prepared by the floral designers at Flowerama Columbus can also go along way to mend fences.
Just Because Day
Spontaneity can be the spice of life according to many people. One such person was a man by the name of Joseph J. Goodwin of Los Gatos California. He is credited with coming up with the very first Just Because Day. Mr. Goodwin came up with the idea of Just Because Day during the early sixties. He felt that family and friends should celebrate life in a spontaneous way and not only at the traditional holidays. Now we have an annual Nationwide celebration day just because.
There is often difficulty in perception of a whimsical day called Just Because Day. We are in a changing world now which makes it even more challenging, Couple that with goals and objectives that we must each be accountable for on our jobs, raising a family and just the everyday work load that sometimes seems endless. The point of a day like this however is to spread positive feelings and joy not only to others but also to yourself.
There are so many spontaneous and fun things you can do. Just being a little silly in your actions or dress can be fun. Taking an unplanned road trip or surprising a friend with a gift. One great gift for a friend or loved one is a flower arrangement, plant or a sweet treats basket from Flowerama Columbus!
One Dozen Assorted Cheryl’s Cookies
Flowerama Columbus is a family business with the utmost of character. The really cool thing is it is more than just our family. We have one family that has two generations of family members who make this place their home. There are families who have worked with us so long their extended family members sacrifice their hard-earned vacation time to work in our little flower shop the two busiest floral weeks out of the year. In most cases they claim they have to because they say they married one of our store managers.
Whatever the reason for their dedication their sacrifice makes the difference in our success. We have grandparents and siblings offer to baby sit next generation team members just so we can pull off a holiday. We have friends of employees take time off of work to help out at holidays, many times only excepting payment in flowers.
When we think about it, when we put this to paper, it really is extremely humbling what others are willing to do for a shared success. This is not an about us as owners, but more of an about us as a group of people that have formed a great big family that make this little flower shop successful. In fact, this might be more of a thank you than an about us.
