  2. it’s crazy to think that I was just asked ‘what’s your favorite color’ a couple days ago from a child… and I said Red, HA! I also said light blue is a close second! ; )
    I never really noticed all of the contradictions of the red color’s meaning (complete opposites) very interesting!

  3. Red has always been my favorite color. It was my high school color (Red Knights). My wedding was red and white. My phone case and wallet are red. And I am sitting here in a red shirt right now as I type!

  4. My favorite color is pink. I wonder what that says about me!?!?!?! It can’t be that far off from red, now can it? Maybe a little sweeter/lovey instead of bold/beautiful? I don’t know?

  5. Red is one of my favorite color,i never thought that it has a meaning.Thanks for sharing this information for awareness!

  6. I always think red does not look good on me. Then I wear a red dress or other shirt and people say how they love it on me. It’s just too “wild” for me. I much prefer muted tones or black.
