Love and Friendship Day in Colombia

Love and Friendship Day in Colombia is the third Saturday in September (in 2009, that’s September 19th). Haven’t heard of this holiday? Well, it’s a bit like Valentine’s Day, without necessarily being about romance. Love and Friendship Day is an opportunity for people to tell their friends and family (and yes, that does include sweethearts, in case you were wondering) just how much they care. Sending flowers to Colombia is a great way of expressing that.iStock_000008153121XSmall

If you know someone in Colombia or just want to celebrate a different holiday, take a look into Love and Friendship Day. How about organizing a gather to bring together all your friends and family? It’s always fun to mix up the different groups in your life, whether it’s family, or friends from work, or friends from college days.

As Fall starts to bring cooler weather there won’t be many more chances to do barbecues, for example, so why not take the opportunity? Put on some music, and hand out small gifts as a token of appreciation. Some good meat and veggies cooking on the grill, fresh crunchy bread and a large green salad are simple and effective ways to celebrate the Colombian Love and Friendship Day.

If you do have friends in Colombia, you could send flowers to Colombia to make their day. Especially if you’re from a different culture, they might be surprised and flattered that you even knew about their special celebration. Need ideas? Well, DaFlores.com is a company that makes it easy to send flowers to Colombia. With a whole variety of flowers already set up on their Love and Friendship Day page, the hardest choice is which ones to send, and to whom.

Life gets busy sometimes, and we forget to show our appreciation. It’s also a long time between Valentine’s Day and Christmas, both big occasions for showing affection and appreciation. So why not introduce your friends and loved ones to Colombia’s Love and Friendship Day and have a great party while you’re at it? If nothing else, it gives you an excuse to hold a gather, and that’s always a fun and rewarding experience!

The Grandparents’ Day holiday was signed into United States law in 1978. Never again will grandparents feel left out because they are recognized on their own special day. You, of course, can make Grandparents’ Day even more special for them with gifts and flowers.

Send a sweet Grandparents’ Day basket that they can reuse, add some chocolates, or send  whatever flowers you know they will love on their own special Grandparents’ Day.  Chances are that as a child you spent many hours with your grandparents, and now you have an opportunity to show them how much you appreciate them on their own special Grandparents’ Day.
