Easter falls on April 4th this year. The date changes from year to year. The reason for this change is that Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. As is common with the majority of holidays, Easter also comes with a changing of the seasons. Spring is symbolic to the coming back to life by the plants and trees that have been dormant for the winter. Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere look forward to warmer weather and an increase in more daylight. This symbolism of the coming back to life is a correlation to the resurrection of Jesus.
Those of the Jewish faith refer to this time as Passover. The Hebrew Bible commemorates Passover as a festival which celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. This is referenced in the Book of Exodus. During the time of Jesus, Jewish pilgrims flocked to Jerusalem in hope that God would liberate them from the Romans. On one Passover, Jesus traveled to Jerusalem and the resulting disturbance in the Temple ultimately led to his crucifixion.
In early America, the Easter festival was more celebrated by Catholics than Protestants. The Puritans of New England considered both Easter and Christmas as festivals for heavy drinking and merrymaking. However, by the 19th century this belief had changed and the holidays became a time to spend joyous moments with family. Today customary traditions of Easter Egg Hunting, Parades and the Easter Bunny have become the norm.

The experience level of our team is tops in the industry. Since we know what we are doing and are very good at out trade, we have strong following of loyal customers.
We have three generations of family members and every single one has worked in the flower shops at one point of their lives. In fact, at least one member from each generation is currently working in the flower shops in one way or another. Now this is not always the case, because some of our youngest generation travels off to college from time to time, but they often help out if only at the holidays.
We often get the opportunity to celebrate our life moments a little different than many other families. We have been known to celebrate Christmas in January and Mother’s Day in late May. We have held a 16th birthday with cake and ice-cream in one of the flower shops because it coincided with prom.
Thanksgiving has been held in one of our locations on more than one occasion. We have been doing this together for so long that this is normal to us. The lessons of sacrifice and commitment have been taught to each generation thru this type of dedication. It all seems very normal to us because it is all we know.
