Do you like the color green? I do, so I have army green pants, various shades of green shirts, sweaters, a pair of Doc Martens boots and a pair of lime green Crocs' loafers. Even three of the cars I have purchased throughout my lifetime have been various shades of dark green. I find it so energizing, that I even married a green eyed Irish descendant girl. LOL!

In basic color theory, green is a secondary color formed by combining the two primary colors yellow and blue. Tertiary variations can be made by increasing or reducing either primary color to form the spectrum from yellow-greens to blue-greens. Values in the color green refer to the degree of light or dark between the extremes of black and white. A tint moves toward white, while a shade moves towards black. In addition to color theory, which can get baffling, green can be symbolic as well.

As the color of grass, trees and plants, as well as of emeralds, it is usually associated with nature. Therefore, it generally symbolizes life, health, and used to represent Mother Nature. In the liturgical calendar of Catholic and Anglican churches, it symbolizes the Holy Ghost, life eternal, and hope, so it is used to drape altars during Epiphany and "Ordinary Time" after Pentecost Sunday. However, darker shades may symbolize negativity, as in rotting vegetation, decaying meat, and being "green with envy."

So rather you like green or not, it is definitely more than just a color. I didn't even go into it's significance to other religions, cultures, and various countries' flags. Anyway, I want to thank all my followers, as well as everyone who takes the time to leave a comment. It truly means a lot to me. Blessings!
