June 23rd National Pink Day

June 23rd National Pink Day

For some reason, not officially recognized, women love the color pink. I am sure it has something to do with being soothing and yet still bright and cheerful. Men generally think a little less of it, I don’t think so much for the actual color but because it shows dirt so easily. Today, whether you are a man or a woman, is the day to wear pink and show your support for the color. It’s halfway between red, a color of deep passion, and white, a color of innocence. I expected to find some great cause for today and was surprised I did not find one. Pink is an anti-bullying color but has it’s own day so I guess today we just celebrate the color pink, why not? We also celebrate Pink Flamingo Day.

How to celebrate – Wear pink. Dye your hair pink. Wash your whites with reds and get an entire new pink wardrobe.

June 12th National Red Rose Day

June 12th – National Red Rose Day

The red rose is America’s favorite flower. It is supposed to represent love and romance. It is a beautiful flower and I have to admit, red is my favorite color so the combination works well. “Roses are red, violets are blue. Some people are allergic and it makes them achoo!” Roses signify many emotions, among the many colors are pink – admiration, yellow – friendship, white – innocence, orange – excitement, lavender – wanting a relationship to grow and peach – thank you. No matter what color rose you get, cherish it, but remember… red is the best.

How to celebrate – Send someone roses today. Plant some roses in your garden. Learn what all the colors of roses mean so you can send the best one for the emotion they represent.
