There's a famous little story of the Poinsettia or Pointsettia!

Fun Facts about the Christmas Flower:
The correct way to spell this Christmas flower is Poinsettia but a popular alternative is Pointsettia

It's the flower that isn't a flower!

It is "Flores de Noche Buena" In Spanish which means the flowers of the good night or the flowers of the holy night - when Jesus was born.

The poinsettia grows wild in Mexico
- like a weed.

Notice the top layer of "petals" are smaller than the next layer.

New Testament - Related to the Christmas Story, but not in the Bible.
