When my husband was alive he would bring home almost daily for about 10 days before Christmas a poinsettia. We would line the front porch with them. I loved each and every one he would bring home. When he passed, that first Christmas was very hard for us. My daughter went to a party where they passed around gifts until you won one; and, she came home with a poinsettia and placed it on the front porch. It was very special. I still make sure to have some poinsettias on the front porch. It's "Tradition".
Wishing you a Merry Christmas.
