Delightful Discoveries - The Green Scene 08.19.10

How much do you know about the color green? Since I got some great positive feedback the other day when I shared some information about the color pink, I thought I'd do the same today with the color green!

Did you know -
  • Do you have green eyes? If you do, you belong to the approximately only 2% of the world population that does!
  • Green is the color used for night vision goggles because the human eye is most sensitive and able to discern the most shades in that color.
  • There is a superstition that sewing with green thread on the eve of a fashion show brings bad luck to the design house.
  • Before the 1950's Santa's suit was originally green until Coca-Cola bought him out and changed his suit to red.
  • Want to make your property look bigger? Plant grass! Green plants visually recede, helping to make a small space appear larger.
  • Bright green is the color of the astrological sign "Cancer."
  • Surgeons typically wear green in the operating room because green is the opposite of red, making red blood much more visible during a procedure.
  • Suicides dropped by 34% when London's Blackfriar Bridge was painted green.
  • Kermit the Frog doesn't find it easy bein' green!
If green is your favorite color, you probably tend to be dutiful and obedient. People who love green are aware of and sensitive to social customs and have a good name in the community they reside in. Usually honest, truthful and straightforward in their approach to life, and have a cheerful disposition. Green is considered to be the color of harmony and balance, and symbolizes hope, renewal and peace.

Whether you have a green thumb, are feeling green with envy (or even a little green around the gills), are trying to go green, or are just looking for greener pastures, I'm giving you the green light to fall in love with these great green goodies!

I have learned a lot about the color green from your wonderful post and probably will give green a lot more respect from now on.
