Mommy Moments - Red

mommy moments

Since this week's theme is about the color red, let me share with you some things about this color. Red is the warmest of all colors. In China, red is the color of prosperity and joy. Brides wear red and front doors are often painted red. Red is the color of blood, and as such has strong symbolism as life and vitality. It brings focus to the essence of life and living with emphasis on survival. Studies show that red can have a physical effect, increasing the rate of respiration and raising blood pressure. These words are synonymous with red or represent various shades of the color red: scarlet, crimson, vermillion, carmine, maroon, burgundy, ruby, rose, madder, rouge, brick, blood red, blush, fire engine red, cinnabar, russet, rust, Venetian red, flame, Indian red, tomato.

Lots of red during Joaqui's 2nd birthday party.


For me, red is a joyful color and signifies life, especially during celebrations. To see more of this color, head on to Mommy Moments.

It's funny, Jeng because red is not my fave color, but it looks good to my son so I buy him red clothes :-).

I love your photos here, your son is very cute in his first pictures; si Jake din may pix na blue long sleeve shirt with red tie :-)

Thanks for sharing the significance of red. Yes, in China brides never wear white as it connotes bad mourning such as death. They wear red as it's a lucky and joyous color.
Love your boy in red tie. He's so cute.
Thanks for your visit, sis.
