Wreaths Across America is a national initiative held this year on December 15. During the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, wreaths are placed on veterans' headstones. Many locations across the U.S. participate, simultaneously holding their own events to commemorate local veterans. Beneva Flowers & Plantscapes encourages our customers to consider making a similar tribute, whether it's in line with what Wreaths Across America does or is something personally crafted and meaningful to you. Wreaths are a wonderful symbol of interconnectedness and a great way to express your respect and love toward someone you've lost during the holiday season.

Secret Santa - a group gift swap where presents are given anonymously - has been around for a very long time. It can be traced to Scandinavia, in fact, where it first existed as the "Julklapp" or "Christmas Knock," which was carried off by a very Santa Claus-like figure. Back then, if you heard a knock on your door, you'd open it to find a gift and no one there. The giver would have run off, preserving his anonymity. Sometimes, he'd leave a few lines of verse behind as a clue with his gift.
Today, variations on the Secret Santa theme cross the globe, each with their own take. Here in the U.S., we typically draw names to find out who we'll be buying for. Then, we select our gift, wrap it up and leave it for them to find. After that, it's a guessing game. At Beneva Flowers, we want to help you pick out the perfect thing for your recipient this year.

While you may be familiar with the flower itself, you may not know why it is so closely associated with the holiday. Here at Beneva Flowers, we love everything about this time of year, and so thought we would share the legend of the poinsettia flower with you. Read More about The Legend of the Poinsettia Flower »
