"Christmas In Bloom"

Bright red blossoms
and deep green leaves
are symbols of this blessed season.
When they appear
in stores everywhere,
then December has a reason.

(Poem continues below)

Christ was born
and angels sang
even animals bowed down and were tamed.
Kings brought Him gifts of treasures galore
and the world was forever changed.

We send you this gift...
a symbol of Christmas,
it's used by all to announce it.
Whew! Who know how to pronounce it?
