If you're looking for something to do today then it's time to celebrate the neglected because it's National Pink Day!  Pink isn't just for the ladies so buck up and show it some love... dudes!  Let's get right into celebrating National Pink Day!  


Well, think about it... how many of you actually enjoy getting decked out in pink or having pink things? Sure, some of you ladies might like some pink things on occasion but some of you hate the color. And guys, well unless you're one trendy fool then you probably don't get anywhere near pink things! So with all that neglect, I think pink deserves its own day to really celebrate and appreciate this soft color.  It's funny though... pink isn't just some made up name; it comes from flowers called pinks with a genus of Dianthus. And the word pink refers to the edge of the flowers, which are often frilly. Because "to pink" is something that has been said since the 14th century and it means "to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern". The word pink actually wasn't used as a noun until the late 17th century. But the usage of pink in the sense of it being a verb is still used today too; hence why we have pinking shears.

But ever since the 1920s pink has always been for boys and blue was for girls. Yes, that's not a typo! Pink was seen as stronger and related to red which was masculine so it was for boys. And they thought blue was "delicate, dainty and pretty" so it was for girls. It wasn't until the 1940s that things flip flopped. So really, who decides who pink is for? Which era of time was right? Does it matter?  Are you ready to wear some pink?


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, do you have any pink things? Break them out! Even if you hate the shirt or whatever it is that's pink, give it a little attention today! Wear it with pride and don't let anyone make fun of you for it. There will be no pink shaming today!

If you don't have anything pink then why don't you go on a fun shopping trip with your family or friends? Have everything try to find some of the wackiest looking pink things, it's even better if it's stuff you can wear! Then you can all get suited up in pink and then go somewhere in a crowd... maybe to a restaurant? Then laugh at how many people look at you for flashing so much pink before their eyes.  You could even make a bunch of pink food today! How's salmon and shrimp sound? If you're not into seafood then why don't you just break out some food coloring, frosting or sprinkles? Make some pink bread, a pink cake, pink noodles, a pink soup or anything else you can come up with! Today is the day to say screw the 20s, screw the 40s... pink is for everyone!  Have a great day and oh my... you look good in pink!
