A time for summer breaks from school, vacations with family and many outside activities.  In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is defined as the months of June, July and August. However, in the Southern Hemisphere summer occurs during the months of December, January and February. The summer solstice is the moment the Sun travels its greatest distance through the sky. This day of course has the most daylight of any other day in the year and therefore referred to by many as the longest day of the year. This actually marks the beginning of the astronomical summer, but we have already felt the warmer temperatures of summer for several weeks.

Father's Day Short History In 1915, a member of the Lions Club introduced the concept of Father's Day. The preference was for the day to occur on the third Sunday in June. The Lions Club International elected to give him the official designation as the "Originator of Father's Day" and he continued the quest to promote Father's Day as an official holiday. After receiving numerous requests for a special day to honor fathers, in 1916, President Wilson proclaimed a day should be recognized as a federal holiday. This was during a speech he gave in Spokane at a Father's Day celebration. However, when the concept reached Congress, it was denied. The majority of the members in Congress were concerned that it would become too commercialized, and the true meaning would be all about companies profiting. President Coolidge suggested a recognition for Father's Day in 1924. Then in 1957, a female Senator spoke out that Congress had been ignoring fathers for over 40 years and had only been honoring mothers. Then in 1966 the first proclamation of Father's Day was issued by President Lyndon B. Johnson. It was declared that the day to honor all fathers would be the third Sunday [...]

Voted Best Florist In Rochester, New York Christmas Flowers, Table Centerpieces and related décor offer so much wonderment and holiday splendor to the season! Rockcastle Florist sells top quality, farm fresh and same day delivery Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths and gifts. Interestingly, Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths and decorations are not only festive but they also have a deep symbolism surrounding the Christmas season. One example is that the Christmas Wreath represents eternity. Understandable connection because due to its circular shape this symbolizes it has no beginning and no end.  In addition, Christmas Wreaths are traditionally designed using evergreen leaves. The evergreen tree does not shed its leaves in the winter thus symbolizing eternal life. The many colors of Christmas decorations have interesting meanings and are believed to date back to the 15th century. At that time in history in London, it was a custom that homes and parish churches display ivy, holly and other various natural decorations.  People felt that the heart-shaped leaves of ivy symbolized Jesus coming to earth and that holly provided protection against witches. Plus, its thorns and red berries represented the Crown of Thorns worn by Jesus at his crucifixion. The intentional selection of red, green and gold decorations is by design also. Gold is one of the first colors associated with Christmas. It symbolizes royalty as it was one of the three gifts of the Wise Men. Red symbolizes the blood of Jesus shed during crucifixion. In 1839, a Lutheran priest came up with the idea to use a wagon wheel to symbolize the approach of Christmas. Using the wheel as the foundation, the priest would use red and white candles to reflect the Advent season. In the Roman Catholic Church, the season of Advent is four Sundays in December each one taking on a different theme: [...]
