Today is National Poinsettia Day!

December 12th, 2014 by Joy Sui

ponsettia

Indigenous to Mexico and Central America, the poinsettia was a symbol of purity to the Aztecs because of its brilliant color. The poinsettia was named after U.S. Ambassador to Mexico and amateur botanist, Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett who had sent some seedlings of the plant back to the US. Over the years, it has remained a holiday favorite because of its color, and some recognize the flower as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem.

Mexican legends tells the story of a girl who can only offer weeds to Jesus on Christmas Eve, and when it was brought to church, it blossomed into beautiful red poinsettias, Flores de Noche Buena, flowers of the holy night.
