Inside: Flores de Noche Buena
Long ago in Mexico, a young girl named Sofia was on her way to the village chapel on Christmas Eve. Although it was time for celebration, Sofia was downcast. She wanted to give a gift to the Christ Child, but her family was poor and she had nothing to give.
"You know, Sofia," whispered her cousin, "I'm sure even the smallest gift, if it's given in love, would make Jesus happy."
But Sofia's hands were still empty. She looked around for something, anything, that she could set before the nativity scene at the chapel. She potted a patch of weeds by the side of the road. Even in winter, they bore tiny blossoms. Sofia picked a small handful and fashioned them into a bouquet.
When she arrived at the chapel, Sofia stood in line behind so many others who placed gifts in front of the nativity. There were handwoven blankets, baskets of fruit and loaves of freshly baked bread. Remembering what her cousin had told her, Sofia held her head high and placed her tiny bouquet before the manger. Then she whispered, "I love you baby Jesus. Happy birthday."
Suddenly, the weeds transformed into bright red flowers. Now, everyone was looking at Sofia's gift in awe, knowing they'd witnessed a miracle. Since that day, the poinsettia (which is native to Mexico) has been known as Flores de Noche Buena, Flowers of the Holy Night.
Wishing you a season of miracles, a lifetime of love.
