Happy Pink Day

Happy pink day, everyone.

June 23rd  honors the color pink and all it represents.

For instance:

  • Pink combined with white or pale blue is identified with femininity, sensitivity, tenderness, as well as romantics. 
  • And pink combined with violet or black is associated with seduction and eroticism. 

So based on that…if pink isn’t a great color for a romance writer than I don’t know what is. I have always liked the color pink…I like blue and purple a lot too…probably just as much. Red is nice also. 

But today is Pink’s day. So we won’t mention those other colors today.

Also since we are all writers are readers, we like words. The color pink has even influenced English vocabulary, such as:
  • In the pink
  • Pink slip
  • Tickled Pink
I decided for Pink Day, I'd find books of mine with pink covers.

From what I've read, pink used to be the color of choice for boys, a long, long time ago. It was considered more royal than other colors, and boys were considered more valuable...hey, some things never change, right? But tradition changed when diseases took many infants from their parents way too soon. Blue was the color of the sky, so it was decided that putting boys in blue would disguise them from the evil spirits, who wouldn't notice them if they were dressed in the color of the sky. So they'd leave the boy babies alone. So from that, we get the now traditional blue for boys and pink for girls.

As a child, I hated pink, because it was too girly for me...I've been a proud feminist for as long as I can remember. Gradually I noticed that while pink wasn't a good color for me, peach was. So I was happy. Until I let my hair go grey...silver, actually. Now peach looks awful on me, but pink, especially hot pink, looks good. Oh well...I guess I'm old enough that no one thinks of me as a girlie-girl anymore.

I didn't know there was such a thing as a day for pink. Thanks for sharing.
