People associate the bright, yellow daffodil as a symbol of rebirth — a sign of the new beginnings that come with spring. Indeed, the daffodil is the birthday flower for March, the month in which the spring equinox begins. Daffodils are said to bring good fortune to the person who avoids trampling on them. Lest they bring unhappy vanity to the bride, daffodils should never be present at a wedding.
Over the last fifty years, the daffodil with its bright cheerful blossom has become synonymous with activities of the Canadian Cancer Society and the support it brings to families facing a cancer journey.
