25 Days of Christmas CoCo Style - Day 7: A Poinsettia By Any Other Name

Poinsettias are one of my favorite things about Christmas. You get such a variety of colors, size and patterns. I add as many as I can around the house (out of dog range, of course). Here's a little holiday trivia for you courtesy of Wikipedia...

The poinsettia (/pɔɪnˈsɛtiə/ or /pɔɪnˈsɛtə/)[1][2] (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is a culturally and commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family that is indigenous to Mexico and Central America. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays. It derives its common English name from Joel Roberts Poinsett,[3] the first United States Minister to Mexico,[4] who introduced the plant into the United States in 1825.
