Legend of the Poinsettia...

The Poinsettia comes from Mexico.  According to the legend, Maria and Pablo, siblings, were very poor.  They were on their way to a Christmas Eve festival and couldn't afford to bring a gift.  They stopped along the road and gathered a bouquet of weeds.  As they arrived at the festival, other children began to make fun and pick on Maria and Pablo because of the weeds they brought.  But the two loved the Christ Child so much, they had to bring a gift.  They laid their bouquet beside the manger, the poinsettia plants burst into brilliant red blossoms.
