November 30, 2017
Poinsettia is the most popular Christmas plant and is often called “A Christmas star”. Large leaves resemble a star and look magnificent. In the natural environment they have a very beautiful bright red color.
Aztects, who lived on the territory of the present-day Mexico, were among the first admirers of poinsettia. Starting from the 16th century, after the discovery of America by Europeans, poinsettia is mentioned in the Christian religion.
There is a legend that tells the story of how the poinsettia came into being. It says that once there was a child, who wanted to buy a present for Jesus but didn’t have any money. So he decided to collect flowers for the Lord along the road. The kid believed that by giving a small bouquet from the loving heart he would become dear to God. When he brought flowers to the church they started to shine and one could see green and red lights that looked like starts. It was the sign that the real Christmas miracle has happened. Since that time, poinsettia blossoms every year in December and warms the souls of people with its lights.
