September / October

Whether it's Swiss Flower Day, Thank You Day, World Smile Day or Halloween, flowers are at the forefront when it comes to bringing joy to others.
Swiss Flower Day: September 1
Ever forgotten the world around you at the sight of a magnificent Swiss flower meadow? Or are flowers indoors a must for you too, for which you, as an environmentally conscious person, would like to see home-grown flowers?

On September 1, the «Swiss Flower Day» will take place for the first time. And this day shall be celebrated on the same date every year. With Swiss flowers, of course. Because in Switzerland we have many dedicated producers who grow the most beautiful flowers from spring to October.

International Orchid Day: first Thursday in September
If you dedicate an international day to a plant, it's because it has succeeded. And the orchid just happens to be one of the most popular plants, especially in winter. There are more than 25,000 species to choose from. So, it's more than likely that you too will find an orchid to suit you and your home. After all, this magnificent plant comes in an incredible number of colors and varieties, with the most diverse patterns and drawings. That's why it adapts to just about anything in terms of radiance. It can be elegant, chic, and stylish, but also cheerful or even punk. Moreover, it is not difficult to handle. It likes it bright (but not full sun), needs water only once a week and some orchid food once a month. An ideal partner!

Thank You Day: last Thursday in September
On the last Thursday in September, the «Thank You Day» takes place in Switzerland. Here the name says it all. On the one hand, it's about being grateful for everything you have. On the other hand, of course, it also makes sense to say thank you to others:

for example, to Grandma, who perhaps looks after our children, or to our best friend for her solidarity. But certainly there are many people in our minds who contribute to our well-being with small and big help. Thank them, perhaps even with flowers. This surprising gesture will certainly go down well.

World Smile Day: first Friday in October
Did you know that the «inventor» of the first smiley was the American graphic artist Harvey Ball? He designed the smiling face to motivate employees of an insurance company. Substantially later, he founded the World Smile Corporation, whose sold smiley products benefit children's charities around the world.

This eventually led him to create a World Smile Day, which since 1999 has called on everyone to make at least one person smile through kindness. Little tip? A spontaneous flower greeting brings a smile to the face of even the biggest grouch, guaranteed!
Grandparents' Day: October 10 (fixed date)
Whether grandma or grandpa: grandparents are more important than ever. For grandchildren, because they are always there, take care of them and play with them. For working parents, because they take the pressure off them. There are Grandparents' Days all over the world.

In our country, it takes place on October 10 and is a good opportunity to say thank you. A cheer for all wonderful, helpful and understanding grandparents - and a bouquet of flowers as a small token of gratitude. This shows how much you appreciate their help.

Halloween: 31 October (fixed date)
Skeleton or witch at your door? Then it’s Halloween, and the creepily costumed kids are on the look-out for sweets. Halloween was a Celtic festival and comes from Ireland. In those days it was believed that in the evening before All Saints Day the boundary between this world and the Otherworld thinned and the ancestors would return for a night.

Today's «Trick or Treat» goes back to a custom from England and Ireland, in which chidren went from house to house, sang a song and asked for «soul cake» (small cakes). With every soul cake they got, they released a soul from purgatory. Last but not least, the pumpkin custom comes from Ireland and goes back to a legend about the villain Jack Oldfield. In the USA the custom was developed. The pumpkin lantern is regarded as a symbolic figure for Halloween and is still called «Jack O'Lantern».
