Flores De Noche Buena – Flowers of The Holy Night

Flowers of The Holy Night

There was once a poor Mexican girl called Pepita who had no present to give baby Jesus at the Christmas Eve services.

The only offering she had was a bunch of weeds which she had picked on her way to Mass.

On her way up the aisle to the altar the weeds blossomed into the beautiful red plant we know as the Poinsettia, known in Mexico as “Flores De Noche Buena”. (Spanish for” Flowers of the Holy Night”)

The shape of the poinsettia flower and leaves are sometimes thought of as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem which led the three wise men to Nazareth and the infant child, Jesus.
