Today is National Pink Day

Each year on June 23rd, National Pink Day colours the world in vibrant shades of pink and explores everything it represents.

So, what do we know about Pink?

  • Dianthus plumarius is a garden plant also known as the common pink, garden pink, or wild pink, or simply pink.
  • Pink is the name of a female singer although she spells it P!nk.
  • Traditionally used clothing and decoration for baby girls.
  • Dating back to the 14th century, “to pink” (the verb) means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern.”

To commentate this day:

  • Plant or give some pink flowers.
  • Use pink in a sentence.
  • Temporarily (or permanently) dye your hair pink.
  • Color or paint something in shades of pink.
  • Paint your nails pink

These are a few of the pink cross stitch projects I have done over the years.

And a couple of books that relate to the pink theme.
