Happy Poinsettia Day!

I changed my LiveJournal theme without really meaning to (I switched from S1 to S2 without realizing what that would do). So I'll probably be playing with it for the next few days. I already miss my old background...

Why is today Poinsettia Day?  Because Joel Roberts Poinsett (the guy who brought the poinsettia to the USA from Mexico) died on this date in 1851.  So it doesn't have anything to do with Christmas only being 13 days away?  I bet it probably does.  There must be some reason his death date was picked instead of his March 2 birthday...
