Happy 2014!

Red is the colour of the wintery nights spent wrapped up in thick blankets and layers of jumpers,

holding onto a steaming mug of hot chocolate by the fireplace – warm, relaxing and cosy. It is the

colour of the banners the people raise into the air as confetti showers down upon you and your

trophy, showing you that you are indeed as great as you think you are – if not, greater. It is the

colour of your cheeks when you meet that special someone, and it is the colour of the beautiful rose

they present to you.

Orange is the colour of the days you spend with your closest friends, laughing about silly jokes or

giving comfort to each other in darker times. It is the colour of a day out in the unknown, exploring

every inch of the universe, may it be ours or your own. It is the colour of your photo albums filled to

the brim with memories of your family and friends.

Yellow is the colour of your smile, no matter rain or shine outside your window. It is the colour of

that imaginary light bulb above your head, sparking a brand new idea for something far greater than

you seem to think. It is the colour of your textbooks, filled with knowledge of all sorts, and with

them come the techniques of analyzing.

Green is the colour that breaks through the blanket of white after a while, blooming and thriving,

all starting anew. It is the colour of a warm hug and a word of ‘welcome’ into a group, as well as the

colour of the national anthem being sung as the flag raises high into the air. It is the colour of nature,

the very heart of Earth.

Blue is the colour of the baton passed between two relay runners, one trusting the other to run

faster and be victorious. It is the colour of a soft ‘how are you now?’ on a rainy day as you curl up in

your room feeling down and it is the colour of you not giving up. It is the colour of signature on the

peace treaty after the war, the colour of soothing words and hugs after a difficult journey.

Indigo is the colour of the words poured out into a simple card filled with wishes, straight from the

bottom of your heart. It is the colour of a duty carried out well. It is the colour of your very first

reaction when someone you care about is hurt, as well as honesty.

Violet is the colour of you, and only you – unique. It is the colour of your mind and everything caught

inside, as it belongs solely to you. It is the colour of your journey to answer a question not yet posed

by anyone. It is the colour of giving a hug to someone even if you never received one when you

needed it most.

The colours of the rainbow are, hopefully, the colours splashed onto the seemingly blank pages of

your book for the years to come.
