10 Reasons to Like Green

Green has always been my favorite color, with a brief two-year deviation to blue when I was 11-13.

When my sign language teacher asked me why my favorite color was green, I answered with one word:  "Alive."

To me, green is the color of life and energy. It's the color of Go lights and sour apple flavor. It's a strong color. It's neither a "girl" color nor a "boy" color. Most of its shades are pleasant.

But in case you need more convincing, here are 10 reasons to like green {or at least find it a very intriguing color}.

1. Employees in green rooms have fewer stomachaches.
2. In North America, green signifies a rise in stock market prices.
3. According to, driving dark green car means you have a solid, trustworthy personality. A bright green one means you're stylist and mischievous.
4. Green was the color of wedding dresses in the 15th century.
5. Green is often {though not always} a lucky color. Think shamrocks.
6. Green M&Ms allegedly make you horny.
7. Green is a primary color. It is all its own, not made from anything else. {*edit* Totally not a primary color. Say it with me, guys: "Yellow and blue make green!" I'm going to blame 2am exhaustion for this one.}
8. There are more shades of green than any other color.
9. It's the easiest color to look at, and can actually improve vision.
10. "Suicides dropped by 34% when London’s Blackfriar Bridge was painted green." {}

So there you have it. What's your favorite color? Can you back it up? XD


P.S. Also, here's the link to my new "Public" blog, Reason in the Rhyme. To get it up and running, most of the first posts will just be repeats of ones that have been here, on Peripeteia.


  1. Blue, probably because it's the most calming colour to me.

    And I hate to be that guy but green isn't a primary colour. It's made from blue and yellow. Red is the third primary colour.

  2. Holy crap. I must have so tired when I wrote this o_o That's like elementary school stuff. *is embarrassed* XD Thank you for pointing that out!

  3. I do like green too, especially the military green :)
    and a high five from me as well for editing!
    Have a good weekend
