National Daisy Day, as the name suggests, is a day dedicated to the beautiful flower and is marked annually on Jan. 28.

Native to northern Europe, daisies are found in North America, Australia, Africa, and South America. The word 'daisy' comes from the Old English language, "day’s eye" as the petals blossom at dawn and close at dusk.
