No Red on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and everyone seems to wear red on this very special day. The purpose of red is to evoke the feeling of love, passion and a lot of love-making. However, there are a lot of single people who feel rather ‘left out’ on Valentine’s Day. I put that in quotations because a lof of single people actually enjoy spending Valentine’s Day alone, they just want others to recognize and be okay with that. With that being said, most break-ups happen around December and January so more than likely…

Anyway, with this day approaching, I propose two new colors to add to this year’s Valentine’s Day color palette: a pastel shade of pink,, and a calm powder blue. Why these two colors?

Well both of them have their own interpretive meanings, but I would like to start off with a nice pastel pink. Colors such as these remind us of romance, valor, innocence, and fresh beginnings. The fact that pastel pink may be a common color for Valentine’s Day is that it’s not common enough. Most pinks range from a carnation pink to hot pink and everything in between. Those pinks imply an aura of sensuality, lust, and even infatuation similar to its counterpart, red.

But what about taking it slow, rather than going fast, and instead, dedicate this Valentine’s Day to getting to know each other better. Maybe it’s a little too much, you may ask?

Or what about the powder blue? Spend the Valentine’s Day with someone you love: a friend, a family member, a pet, a mentor, or whoever inspires you. The calmness and serenity of the blue represent familiarity, closeness, and peace of mind. Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be about a lover or a significant other. It can just be about friends and family in general.
