National Wreaths Across America Day was created by Morrill Worcester, the owner of Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine.

The annual tribute went on quietly for several years, until 2005, when a photo of the stones at Arlington, adorned with wreaths and covered in snow, circulated around the internet.

Now, WAA coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 3,400 locations across the U.S.
