days to go
Less than two weeks to go now! How are your Christmas preparations coming? Is the turkey ordered, the presents bought? Or are you more of a last-minute, December-24th kind of planner?
And now for the serious business of the day. Opening up your Clare Florist Advent Calendar, you discover that behind the 12th door, is... Poinsettia!
Festive Fact: It's Poinsettia Day!
December 12th was chosen as Poinsettia Day, as it marks the death of Joel Roberts Poinsett, an American botanist, physician and Minister to Mexico who in 1828 sent cuttings of poinsettia to his home in South Carolina. Poinsettia Day was created in 2002 in recognition of this beautiful houseplant, which is the best-selling potted plant in the United States and Canada.
