Why is Poinsettia a Symbol of Christmas?
Poinsettias create colorful, festive decorations during the winter months; there’s no doubting it. But, they’re colorful leaves, not flowers, and they’re endemic to Central America, notably southern Mexico. So, why have they considered the official Christmas flowers in the first place?
An old Mexican tradition explains why we link poinsettias with the holidays. Pepita, a young girl, was disappointed that she didn’t have a present for the baby Jesus to leave at Christmas Eve services. Her cousin consoled her by saying that Jesus would appreciate whatever gift she could give him, no matter how tiny.
Pepita grabbed a bouquet of weeds she passed on her way to church because she didn’t have enough money for a fancy offering. According to other story versions, an angel appeared to her and told her to pick the plants. It was said that Pepita left the weeds at the base of the nativity scene when she arrived. The weeds morphed into lovely red blossoms all of a sudden.
This is why the colors of Christmas are green and red.
From thereon in, poinsettias became the “Flores de Noche Buena,” or the “Flowers of the Holy Night.” Pepita’s innocence and humble beginnings had a lot to do with the signification.
Poinsettias were brought to the US by Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first American ambassador to Mexico, in the early 1800s. However, it wasn’t until the entrepreneurial Ecke family began promoting them a century later that they became standard holiday decorations.
Paul Ecke Jr. brought poinsettia plants to different TV studios, including Bob Hope’s TV specials and popular “The Tonight Show.” The trend eventually caught on, and poinsettias are now among the most popular flowers to ever be sold in the United States.
