Spotlight Friday: Yellow

The color associated with Monday is yellow, the color of the moon.

Yellow is the lightest hue of the spectrum.

It is also the most brightest color, most visible. On a rainy day, you still see the pedestrian crossing that is colored in yellow.

School bus yellow is a color which was especially formulated for use on school buses in North America in 1939. The color is now officially known in Canada and the U.S. as National School Bus Glossy Yellow and was originally called National School Bus Chrome. The pigment used for this color was, for a long time, the lead-containing chrome yellow.[1]

The color was chosen because it attracts attention and is noticed quickly in peripheral vision, faster than any other color. Scientists describe this as follows: “Lateral peripheral vision for detecting yellows is 1.24 times greater than for red.”[2] (wikipedia)

Color Psychologist say that yellow is uplifting, puts you in a cheerful mood, offers hope and happiness.

It is said to be that yellow the best color to create enthusiasm for life and can awaken confidence and optimism.

Looking around I don’t have very many yellow things in our house. Yes, the living room walls are in a muted light mustard yellow. I don’t think I have a yellow piece of clothing, besides my hospital socks. Oh hold on, I knitted one yellow top. I only wear that though when my skin is not so pail anymore.

So, let’s go hunt some yellow on Zibbet.
