Christmas is right around the corner, that means it is time to decorate your home and office. One of the best ways to incorporate some Christmas cheer is with a beautiful arrangement of poinsettias. These lovely red, green, pink, white and plum flowers feature the colors of the holiday so don’t be afraid to make them the centerpiece in any room.
Why Poinsettias are the Flower of Christmas
Poinsettias are officially classified as ornamental shrubs native to South America where they were originally referred to as “Flor de la Noche Buena”. This translates to the “Flower of the Holy Night”. Historians widely agree that the poinsettia was first used as a Christmas decoration in the 1600s when Franciscan monks used poinsettias during their Nativity ceremonies.
Mexican legend states that a young child was traveling to a community Nativity scene and realized that he forgot to bring a gift for Christ. He stopped half way, plucked green blooms from the roadside and carried them the rest of the way. Upon arrival, this child was ribbed by his peers for bringing such a plain gift. However, when the boy placed the blooms at the manger,a glorious red flower shined atop the greenery. This legend is central to the connection between poinsettias and the Christmas celebration.
