December Birth Flowers
The month of December has 2 birth flowers which are the holly and the Paperwhite Narcissus. The holly is a flower that symbolizes domestic happiness. However it is also a symbol for Christians, as the sharp leaves represent the crown of thorns Christ wore, and the berries represent his blood. The fact that they are evergreen shows eternal life. The next birth flower is the Paperwhite Narcissus which symbolizes hope and faithfulness. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Narcissus conveys that you want your beloved to stay just the way they are. Livebeautiful stated that the history of how the Narcissus got its name is quite interesting because it comes from Greek Mythology. Narcissus was a young hunter that was famous for his good looks. He looked at his reflection in a pond and fell in love with it. When he realized that he couldn’t get to it, he committed suicide, and a bed of flowers sprung from the ground from his body. These were named Narcissus flowers.
