Did You Know

 

The most popular holiday plant — the fire engine red poinsettia — is named after Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett. An amateur botanist, he was appointed the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico in 1825. There, he discovered the plant, and sent samples home to propagate in his greenhouse.

 

More than 9,000 workers are employed producing games and toys for children in about 600 locations throughout the U.S. California led the nation with about 100 such places of employment.

 

In the U.S. there are a number of communities with festive holiday names, including North Pole, AK; Santa Claus, IN; Santa Claus, GA; and Noel, MO. There is also Snowflake, AZ.

 

Tennessee is bordered by 8 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia - more than any other in the US.
