DECEMBER FLOWERS OF THE MONTH 

THE NARCISSUS (PAPERWHITE)

The December birth flower commonly represents purity, sweetness, and simplicity. The narcissus flowers are also often associated with respect and faithfulness. Yet their symbolism and meanings varied since they are widely prevalent in many cultures.   

POINSETTIAS

While poinsettias are more commonly associated with Christmas, they are also considered as birth flowers for December. Poinsettias are also called Christmas Stars and Christmas Flowers because of the shape and color of the “flowers,” which are technically bracts. The flower is named after American diplomat and physician Joel Roberts Poinsett, who took a vital role in bringing the plants from Mexico to North America.

HOLLY

Holly is the other birthday flower for December. It’s also often associated with the Yuletide Season because of its cheerful appearance that exudes vibrant hues of red and green. For that reason alone, hollies, especially the English or European hollies, are frequently requested for seasonal decorations. 

Note, however, that hollies have prickly, sharp leaves, so take extra caution when handling them. That characteristic alone makes hollies a symbol of combativeness, pain, and trickery. They also mean aggression and defensiveness. On a positive note, however, hollies are also associated with happiness and optimism.

In Christianity, the berries of hollies are believed to be white but stained red by the blood of Christ. The spiky leaves, on the other hand, are a representation of the crown of thorns.
