Pedro legend card reads... Maria and her little brother Pedro looked forward to the Christmas festival in their village but were saddened, they were too poor to give a gift to the baby Jesus. On Christmas Eve the siblings began their journey to church when suddenly an angel appeared and told them to gather some of the weeds growing by the roadside, saying “The importance of giving is not what you give, but that it is given from your heart with love”. As they placed their humble gift before the manger they remembered the angel’s kind words when suddenly the bouquet of weeds burst into blooms of brilliant red flowers. All who saw were certain that they had witnessed a Christmas miracle right before their eyes. From that day on, the bright red flowers were known as the Flores de Noche Buena, or Flowers of the Holy Night, for they bloomed each year during the Christmas season.
