Poinsettias bloom around Christmas time and are traditional Christmas flowers. Their beauty and color enliven the Christmas scene with festive spirit. The custom of decorating and giving poinsettias at Christmas comes from our neighbors to the south, Mexico, where the poinsettia bloom profusely. In most European countries, it is customary to bring flowers when invited to someone’s home. This lovely old Santa, who never forgets to bring toys for the children at Christmas time, brings a bouquet of poinsettias for the parents of the home. In addition he brings an old-fashioned heart-shaped box of candy for all to enjoy.
