The poinsettia is strongly associated with the Christmas holiday, most likely because of the folklore behind it. The is native to Mexico, and local legend explains the first time a poinsettia bloomed- on the night the Christ child was born. A poor peasant girl picked some ragged wilds by the side of the road in order to have something to offer the baby. When she placed her offering at His feet, the story goes, the weeds were transformed into a beautiful poinsettia. It is for this reason that the is thought to grow in the shape of the Star of Bethlehem.
