Not the drink, but I do like it. Did you know the word ‘orange’ is the only word in the English language that has no rhyming word? And if you think about true orange shades they’re most commonly associated with food. There are oranges, tangerines, and then when you get to the darker shades there’s pumpkin and then of course that unique burnt orange color that you get from pumpkin pie. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
Orange is bright and cheerful, and even the darker shades have that crisp fall emotion attached. The color orange usually evokes that happy feeling associated with summer time or the melancholy of Indian summer, when leaves change colors, we start wearing sweaters, the days get shorter and Thanksgiving (and Christmas) are just around the corner.
As with yellow, I found nothing negative attached to orange. Although I think orange is one of the colors you have to be truly drawn to. Most people either love it or don’t. It is a color that usually holds some memory of comfort or happiness for the people who are drawn to it. You rarely find someone who says that ‘orange is just okay.’ (Okay, I know now that I said this, at least one of you will tell me that, but its all good, there is a point to the posts about colors, and we’re almost there.)
So, who out there likes / doesn’t like orange, which shades, and why?
