Flower of the Day-Poinsettia

I took this picture this morning at my church.  This is the Nativity Scene in the gathering space at St. Brendan’s Church.  Aren’t these poinsettia’s beautiful?  Did you know that the poinsettia is actually a small tropical tree?  I wonder how they became the Christmas flower.  They are indigenous to Mexico.
