Saturday, December 12th is known throughout the U.S. as National Poinsettia Day. The Poinsettia is a representation of the joy and magic of the yuletide season. There are many stories around how Poinsettias became the Christmas flower, one of the most popular is the Legend of the Poinsettia:
Story has it that a poor child in Mexico, having nothing to give the Christ Child on Christmas Eve, gathered a bundle of weeds from the side of the road into a small green bouquet. When she brought her gift to her church’s nativity scene, the simple weeds transformed into a brilliant red bloom for all to see. From that night on, the Poinsettia has been known as the Flower of the Holy Night.
