The Legend of Christmas Rose
Origin of the name
It is said that when Jesus was born, there was a poor girl who wanted to give flowers and congratulations. At that time, the winter was snowing, the ground has nothing but the snow. The girl cried anxiously. At this time, an angel came and a bunch of flowers were turned from under the snow to this kind girl– Christmas Rose.
Christmas Rose means contradiction and hesitate, which is a birthday flower on January 21 and January 25(the 21st represents the contradiction and the 25th represents hesitation). It is both a very precious herbal flower and a highly toxic plant, which is in line with contradictory characteristics.
Therefore, those who are born with this kind of flower blessing will hesitate, having a childish and mature character that are elusive.
