Poinsettia Day

According to several online sources, the USA observes December 12th as Poinsettia Day -- news to me, too!  Anyway, greenhouses are full of these seasonal beauties and soon they will be adorning places of worship, retail outlets and possibly your dinner table.  Truly, these brightly colored bunches of leaves (they really are not petals!) are gorgeous and available in several colors besides the flaming red variety often associated with this plant.
