Iris Day celebrates the state flower of Tennessee, symbol of Brussels, and flower for 25th wedding anniversary. Irises come in rainbow of colors such as blue, purple, white and yellow, pink and orange, brown and red, and even black.
The name comes from the Greek word for ‘rainbow’ and most mythology adepts will tell you Iris was the messenger of the gods, the link between sea and sky, the rainbow glider, if you will. Doesn’t that just inspire you to find a bunch of Irises for your girlfriend, mother, daughter and sister right now? It should, because on Iris Day, all is forgiven if you bring a bunch of these to your special someone; so if you’ve been naughty, now’s the time to be nice.
