Sweetest Day is coming up on October 18. While this day has an interesting history, which we’ll go into in just a short while, it’s also an opportunity to bring love and chocolates to your friends and loved ones. Kind of like a Valentine’s Day in October but focusing more on brightening people’s lives than romances, flowers fit this celebration like a hand in a glove.
Bosses’ Day is October 16th, which means you have plenty of time to plan a surprise. While cartoons like Dilbert and shows like The Office generally caricature the one in charge, in reality good bosses exist in every industry. Think to whenever you’ve been supported or given help, and you’ll know you’re on to a good thing.
Mother-in-Law Day is October 28 in 2012, which means you still have time to order flowers for delivery in time for Sunday. Get your order in today or early tomorrow and we can still deliver flowers on Saturday, in plenty of time for Mother-in-Law Day. If you’re not familiar with the process, we’ll guide you through in just a moment.
What are you doing for Sweetest Day in 2012? Sweetest Day 2012 takes place on October 20, which is tomorrow. We wrote about the background of Sweetest Day earlier this week, but to celebrate we’ve looked around for different celebrations around the country and share them now for your enjoyment.
The third Saturday in October marks a regional holiday in the Great Lakes and northeastern United States: Sweetest Day. This holiday was started by the confectionary industry to provide “an opportunity to remember the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.”
When you talk about employment, the classic stereotype is of an overbearing or Dilbert-style incompetent boss, creating trouble and strife for the employees. It’s the stuff of stand-up comedy and cartoons, for sure, but reality isn’t really that way, is it? We know better.
With under a week to the beginning of October, let’s look ahead to what the month has in store. Apart from Halloween and general Fall flower-giving, there are plenty of opportunities to send flowers in October and delight someone you know.
