The legend of the Christmas Rose tells of a poor, young shepherdess who came to visit the baby Jesus. When she saw that the Magi had brought rich offerings of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, she stood outside the door quietly weeping. She had searched the countryside for flowers to bring, but there was not even a single bloom to be found in the bitter cold. An angel watching over her knew about her fruitless search and took pity. He gently brushed aside the snow at her feet, and there sprang up a cluster of beautiful white roses with pink-tipped petals. The angel softly whispered that these roses were more valuable than gold, frankincense, and myrrh for they were pure and made of love. The maiden joyfully gathered the flowers and offered them to the holy child, who smiled.
