The Poinsettia Legend
Now, you may be wondering exactly how the poinsettia became a recognized symbol of the Christmas season. We were curious too, so we did a little digging into the history of the poinsettia plant's relationship to the holiday season!
Poinsettias are native to central America, mainly near southern Mexico. Many believe that the shape of a poinsettia is meant to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem, but an old Mexican legend can also be credited for tying the plant to Christmastime.
The tale says that a young girl wished to gift the baby Jesus at Christmas, but had nothing to give. So, she gathered a bouquet of weeds and brought them to the nativity scene, and legend has it that the love in her heart turned the weeds into beautiful crimson flowers. Because of this legend, poinsettias are known as "Flores de Noche Buena," which translates to "Flowers of the Holy Night."
