The Poinsettia

A charming story is told of Pepita, a poor Mexican girl who had no gift to present the Christ Child at Christmas Eve Services. As Pepita walked slowly to the chapel, her heart was filled with sadness. Her cousin Pedro tried to console her. "Pepita," he said "I am certain that even the most humble gift, given in love, will be acceptable in His eyes."

Not knowing what else to do, Pepita gathered a handful of common weeds from the roadside and fashioned them into a small bouquet. She looked at the scraggly bunch of weeds and felt embarrassed by the humbleness of the offering. Yet, this was the only gift she could offer.

As she entered the chapel and approached the altar, she remembered the words of her cousin. "Even the most humble gift, given in love, will be acceptable in His eyes." Her spirits began to lift as she knelt down and laid the bouquet at the foot of the nativity scene.

Suddenly, the bouquet of weeds burst into blooms of brilliant red, and all who saw them were certain that they had seen a Christmas miracle right before their eyes. From that day on, the bright red flowers were known as the Flores de Noche Buena, or Flowers of the Holy Night. Today, the common name for these plants is poinsettias!
