The poinsettia, a symbol of the holiday season, has a fascinating Christmas history. Originating from Mexico, it's named after Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, who introduced the plant to the United States in the early 19th century. Legend intertwines it with a Mexican tradition of a girl, lacking a gift for Jesus, offering weeds that blossomed into poinsettias, known as "Flores de Noche Buena" (Flowers of the Holy Night). Its association with Christmas stems from Mexican folklore, where it symbolizes purity and the Star of Bethlehem. In the early 20th century, its vibrant red and green leaves became emblematic of the holiday spirit, popularized by its seasonal bloom coinciding with Christmas. Today, the poinsettia remains a cherished decorative element during the festive season, adorning homes and spaces worldwide.
