In the Netherlands we're as a nation postponing the Christmas cheer until after December 5th, when our own Saint Nicholas heads back to his palace in Spain. But boy, then it does start in earnest. The Weekend following Sinterklaas' departure, it's absolute mayhem in every garden centre selling Christmas trees.
Personally i love the Holidays not so much because of the religious significance, but rather because people all over the world go through lenghts to spend time with the people they love. No matter what (if any) religious meaning you attach to this time of year, the way this season helps get people together is a reason to celebrate on its own.
Sending a little Holiday wildflower love
And it's not just about seeing everyone you love in person, this season is also about sending your best wishes to friends and family. How about sending them some flowers as well? Not actual flowers of course, they'd wilt in the mail, but wildflower seeds caught in a Holiday card. Especially for these festive times we designed 4 new Holiday Growing Cards. The cards have been printed on Growing paper: 240gr recycled paper that contains wildflower seeds.
To germinate the seeds, lay the paper in moist soil, place in a sunny spot, cover with a thin layer of earth and keep moist. Depending on the kind of seed in the paper, you'll see the first tiny green leaves pop out of the earth after about ten days. Order now and we'll send along a matching Bee Happy envelope for free!
