It's Forget-Me-Not Day: Don't Forget!

November 10, 2016

Just in case you forgot, Nov. 10 is Forget-Me-Not Day, a special day set aside each year to remember the special people in your life.

 

Forget-Me-Not Day

 

While its origins are unknown, this annual “holiday” provides the perfect opportunity to rekindle an old romance, visit a childhood friend or call that relative you haven’t seen in years. And Forget-Me-Not Day is not just for the living. It also serves as an important reminder to remember those very special loved ones who have passed away.

 

Forget-Me-Nots

 

Forget-Me-Nots are also lovely flowers that bloom in the spring and are especially fragrant in the evening hours. The Alpine Forget-Me-Not, Mayosotis alpestris, is the official state flower of Alaska.   Legend has it that “forget-me-not” were the very last words a knight said to his lover. Due to the heavy weight of his armor, the knight fell and sunk to the bottom of a river after uttering those words to his special lady friend.
