There is no Christmas without a Poinsettia! This plant is beautiful and is one of the Christmas flowers the deep red of the traditional flower is a wonderful color. I guess at this time of the year this plant is used to decorate indoor and outdoor pretty much everywhere around the world!

No matter if is a real plant a drawing or anything that represent this red flower, just the presence in the house enhance the feeling of the holidays.
