About the Holiday

National Pink Day celebrates the color that is created by combining red and white. Show that you are "tickled pink" with this holiday by wearing pink today. The color pink has been associated with breast cancer awareness (pink ribbon) as well as the the third week of Advent when a pink candle is lit (which signifies joy). Pink is the color or is in the name of watermelon, pink flamingos, Pepto Bismal, Pink Floyd, Pink panther, pink elephant, and pink eye. Pink roses signify happiness, admiration, and being thankful. states that "Bright pinks, like the color red, stimulate energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate. They also encourage action and confidence. Pink has been used in prison holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behavior."
