National Color Day

National Color Day is celebrated on October 22 every year in the United States. This is a truly vibrant holiday! Think about how many colors and their shades surround us … It is noteworthy that each of them affects the mood and life in general. Enjoy the colors and celebrate the date with us!


National Day is founded thanks to General Motors. The company launched a promotion to celebrate the release of the new Chevrolet. Since then it has become a new tradition. People were happy to join the events and do so to this day.

We often talk about color in terms of aesthetics. Some people like deep black, others prefer light colors… This is reflected in clothes, accessories, home interiors. But we do not think about their direct influence, but it is simply colossal! The response to certain shades lies in human biology and personal preferences.

So, advertising campaigns try to influence us. For example, the combination of red and yellow stimulates the brain. Big restaurants have taken advantage of this fact: McDonald’s, KFC… There are colors that are annoying, they are never used in marketing.
