Seasonal colors.  Seasonal sales.  Seasonal Affect Disorder.  Seasonal seasonings?

It’s such a distinctive red.  Not cherry red, certainly not lipstick red, not an orange-y red, yet not a purple-y red.  A pinkish red?  Perhaps, but without the feminine overlay of “pink.”

And then, there are about twenty shades of red that could/should be mixed if you were to paint this.  The complementary green doesn’t hurt, either.  So, maybe there should be a color “poinsettia red?”

  1. I would hesitate to name this color poinsettia red, as I doubt it is a native color for the poinsettia. It’s a lovely pink, though.
