Also known as the Christmas Star and Christmas Flower, it’s said that this winter flower’s association with Christmas comes from a Mexican legend. The story goes that a child, with no means for a grander gift, gathered humble weeds from the side of the road to place at the church alter on Christmas Eve. As the congregation witnessed a Christmas miracle, the weeds turned into brilliant red and green flowers.
While considered by the ancient Aztecs to be symbols of purity, in today’s language of flowers, the December birth flower, symbolize good cheer and success and are said to bring wishes of mirth and celebration.
