In the Finnish language, we have a colour called "joulunpunainen". In Swedish, there's "julröd" and in German "weihnachtsrot". I'm not quite certain if "Christmas red" exists but it must be a lovely shade of red. :)
According to Wikipedia, the traditional colours of Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Jesus, which was shed in his crucifixion, while green symbolizes eternal life, and in particular the evergreen tree, which does not lose its leaves in the winter, and gold is the first colour associated with Christmas, as one of the three gifts of the Magi, symbolizing royalty. Father Christmas/Santa Claus traditionally wears red, because the original Saint Nicholas was a bishop of the Greek Christian church in the 4th century and bishops then dressed in red.

Postauksen toiseksi ylimmässä kuvassa oleva syntymäpäiväkalenteri sekä tonttutarrat ovat Minna Immosen taiteilemia (tämäkään ei ole sponsoroitu postaus). Allaolevia jouluaskartelulaatikosta löytyneitä ihania numerotarroja käytän ensi vuoden kalenterin tuunailuun.
My next year's planner/organizer/diary will look better than ever, well, at least December will look fabulous with these stickers.
