Pointlessness of Poinsettias And Flower Power


The inclusion of the Poinsettia almost ruins Christmas.

4: Significant Other's Birthday (any flowers are fine, something long-lasting is preferable, the female birthday is known to extend at least a week in some circles)
5: Valentine's Day (roses are the only option unless something else has been prearranged)

Any other purchase of dying flora is to be made with the maximum of discretion and romantic impact. And keep in mind that unless an allergy is involved, fake flowers are to romance what a plastic Christmas tree is to a lump of coal in the thermal underwear of tradition.
