I love the legend of how we got the poinsettia in the first place. The flower originally came from Mexico, where it was called "Flor de Noche Buena", or "Flower of the Holy Night". According to the legend, the flower first appeared in a little village long ago, in Mexico, where everyone was getting ready for Christmas.
It's "a simple truth: you will get hurt. Life will throw you for a loop and give you whiplash. It will cut you, bruise you, break you. That’s just how it is."
