Everyone loves poinsettias,a lovely Christmas tradition. Central Square Florist has a festive selection for you and your friends, relatives, and colleagues.
By an act of Congress, December 12th was declared National Poinsettia Day. The date signifies the passing of Joel Roberts Poinsett, credited with introducing the native Mexican plant to the United States. Mr. Poinsett was the first United States ambassador to Mexico and brought the plant back to his Greenville, S.C.plantation where they thrived. He then gave the plants to friends.
In Mexican folklore, there is the story of a little girl who had nothing to bring to church for Christmas. On her way to church, she picked some plants by the side of the road. As she entered the church, the ends of the leaves turned into bright, brilliant red flowers!
