Legend of Christmas Flowers
The Christmas flower is not a simple and ordinary flower. Poinsettia has a story behind it that originates from Mexico. It talks about a girl named Maria/ Pepita and her brother. On the eve of Christmas the brother and sister didnít have any gift to present to Christ Child. So on their way to the service they gathered a handful of common weeds and arranged them into a small bouquet. Though they were quiet ashamed of their humble gift, they put it around the manger and miraculously the bouquet of weeds burst into brilliant red blooms and the manger was surrounded by beautiful star-like flowers.
