National Poinsettia Day

Posted by Brittany

To celebrate National Poinsettia Day I cleared a spot in our kitchen’s large bay window and sought out something red and beautiful to fill it! Last weekend Chris and I saw some beautiful poinsettia plants at our local hardware store and we were both looking forward to the prospect of picking one out for today’s “unofficial.” In fact, we were both looking forward to it so much so, that even though I had over an hour to kill between getting off work and picking up Chris, he asked me to hold off on the plant shopping until we could go together. And so it was: when we were finally reunited after our long workdays we went to Lowes together and perused the selection of poinsettias. The stock wasn’t quite as big and beautiful as what we’d seen last weekend, but that didn’t stop us from finding the perfect 3.5 quart poinsettia. The giant beauty is nestled in our kitchen window now, making spirits bright — our very own La Flor De la Nochebueno.

Tomorrow we’ll continue with the holiday cheer — it’s National Cocoa Day!
