Christmas Sales Day #13. Dec 16, 2013
While putting this sale together I started to wonder why, the Poinsettia, of all flowers, was associated with Christmas. So I did the Google thing and this is what I found:
"Also known as 'the Christmas flower,' 'lobster flower,' or 'Mexican flame leaf,' the poinsettia has a rather colorful history dating back to the ancient Aztec people who viewed the plant as a symbol of purity. A few hundred years later, Christians in Mexico thought the star-shaped leaves symbolized the Star of Bethlehem that led Joseph and Mary to the stable where Jesus was born. This, coupled with the fact that the plant was in full bloom during Christmas time, caused people to associate them with the holiday, which is why they are still the most used plant during that special time of year for decorating."
