Dear Readers,

Every year just the Poinsettia Industry without counting their trading chains ,along millions of supermarkets, produces a revenue of at least 250,000,000 that support hundreds of thousands of Americans, apart of the additional fact that their presence make happier our lives in the cold nights of winter.

These beautiful flowers that blosson in Christmas time are just only one of the dozens of good things Mexican culture have granted to build the American dream along History.

Please check

Poinsetta named after the lastname of an American diplomat who was the very first to bring them to America in the XIX century, have been cultivated for thousands of years in south central Mexico,where are called Holy Night flowers.

Please check

The Aztecs called poinsettias "Cuetlaxochitl." During the 14th - 16th century the sap was used to control fevers and the bracts (modified leaves) were used to make a reddish dye.

Montezuma, the last of the Aztec kings, would have poinsettias brought into what now is Mexico City by caravans because poinsettias could not be grown in the high altitude.

In the 17th century, Juan Balme, a botanist, noted the poinsettia plant in his writings.

Im a fan of them. About 20 years ago a local welder made a bunch of lighted poinsettias from steel rods and regular christmas lights. Created a local fad that spread through the city until we have them everywhere at Christmas. People have them in their yards, all over businesses, city property....everywhere. This year they started popping up on top of the mountain. They range from 6 feet to 30 feet across.

The guy who sells them also sells a service to install/take down/store them. He did well for himself, and it made our community rather pretty during the Christmas season.

Yes, poinsettias represent a very distinctive symbol of nature's rebirth, their colorful and vitality aspect has a very interesting contrast with the crude almost dead winter.

Is that special colorful beauty what matches perfectly with the message of Christmas, a spiritual rebirth in Christ for our souls.

Thanks for your reply,
