At this time of year red is the colour that everyone associates with Christmas. Elves have at least some red in their costume.
The man himself wears red. This was Muffin’s first time seeing Santa and like any little toddler she was petrified. Bundy took his last Christmas visit to Santa in his stride.
This year Muffin didn’t worry about Santa and Marley also just accepted the man in red as another new experience he has had since coming to live with us.
The man in red is probably more sought after by children because they quickly learn that Santa has a sack on his back that always yields something.
And when Santa is not available and the masked masquerader takes over the present giving, even they wear red.
as do our bushes and
trees – paricularly the poinciana (flame tree).
In non christian countries at this time of year red will still be seen.
I hope everyone has a Happy Christmas or Happy Holiday and May peace find us all in the coming year.
