Each year I am in charge of purchasing school supplies for my son. The first year, I selected the standard box of 16 crayons. Then, he graduated to a box of 24 for school and a larger set of 64 for art projects at home. I wonder how many parents have taken the time to read the names assigned to each color? They are far more descriptive than orange (Mango Tango), green (Inchworm) and yellow (Canary).
This post if for those of you who love researching unusual and interesting facts. In this link, Merriam-Webster defined 10 unusual colors and the history behind their names. It’s worth a look-Just for Fun!
