Easter, one of the most important festivals of Christians, is celebrated on the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, which is the first moon whose 14th day is on or after March 21. It is believed that the Christ rose from his death three days after his crucifixion. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of prayer and mortification.
On this pious day, people use to present gifts to their dear ones to express their gratitude. For this, white lily is the most popular one. In the United States, this gift was itself a gift from destiny. In the 1880s, while in Bermuda, Ms Thomas P Sargent became familiar with a beautiful lily that blooms naturally in springtime. She just fell for this lovely white 'Bermuda' lily. She brought its bulbs in back home in Philadelphia. There, a nursery man, called William Harris, fostered its popularity among other florists.
Following this it did not take long for the flower to win the hearts of million to be the main flower of the Easter floral arrangements. This way, the Americans got a very popular and lovely gift for their loved ones.
