History behind Christmas Greens

GarlandlgUsing greens not only for the holiday but for all events started way back before written history. The greens were a sign of good luck and were to ward off all evil spirits. The greens were often taken in doors to freshen stale air and freshen spirits during the long winter. One of the first written references to a Christmas tree was in 1605 in Strasbourg, where a visitor reported seeing a tree decorated with apples, gilded candies, paper roses and thin wafers. Two hundred years later, such a tree was brought to America by Germans settling in Pennsylvania. By 1848, the beloved little firs were selling in Philadelphia markets. Mistletoe was used by the English during the winter months and was hung over the front door. This was a way to make peace to all who enter, happiness is all that could pass underneath the mistletoe so enemies would have to seal the peace with a kiss of friendship. This is probably how the custom started that anyone caught under the mistletoe must kiss!

Flowering Facts: Poinsettia Plant

poinsettiaNo flower rings Christmas more like the festive Poinsettia! Learn some fun facts about this traditional Christmas plant…

Poinsettia_Red_Dress_in_Holiday_Containerlg• Many plants in the Euphorbiaceae family, including the Poinsettia, ooze a milky substance that is more like a sap and could cause a slight irritation for people that are allergic to latex. For pets this sap can cause a mild irritation or nausea. It is a good idea to keep pets away from the plant, especially puppies and kittens.
• Poinsettias are actually NOT poisonous. Recent studies have shown that a 50lb child would have to consume over 500 leaves to have any harmful effects. Poinsettia leaves have an awful taste, tough! Keep your pets are not chewing on the leaves because it can cause nausea and vomiting.
• The beautiful colored parts of the plant that most believe to be the “flower” are actually colored bracts, which are the leaves.
• Joel Roberts Poinsett was a botanist and introduced the Poinsettia to the United States from Mexico in 1828.
• In Mexico this is a shrub that can grow 10-15 feet tall.
• There are more than 100 varieties of poinsettias available today. Poinsettias come in colors like the traditional red, white, pink, burgundy, marbled and speckled.
• December 12th is Poinsettia Day. This day marks the death of Joel Roberts Poinsett in 1851.
