According to a text known as the Florentine codex, the flowers - known as "Cempohualxochitl" in Nahuatl - were involved in the celebrations of two Aztec feast days that commemorated the dead. Their use in these celebrations is believed to be tied to a romantic Aztec origin myth about two lovers, Xótchil and Huitzilin. According to the legend, the lovers would often hike to the top of a mountain to leave flower offerings for the sun-god Tonatiuh, and to swear their love and commitment to one another. When Huitzilin is tragically killed in battle, a distraught Xóchitl prays to the sun-god to reunite them on earth. Tonatiuh, moved by her prayers and offerings, grants her wish by sending a ray of sun that transforms her into a flower as golden as the sun itself, and reincarnates her lover as a hummingbird. When the Huitzilin the hummingbird approaches Xóchitl the flower with his beak, her twenty petals bloom, filling the air with Cempasúchil's distinctive and powerful scent.
