Notes From the 6 Train: What’s New With New Years?

Right before the end of the fall semester I did a presentation about New Years attire. In the process, I learned a lot traditions and just fun facts about New Years. Seeing how today is New Years Eve, I figured it’s obviously the perfect time to share my knowledge.

This year the ball in Times Square will be covered with 2,688 waterford crystals. I have never spent New Years in New York. For all those who are going to see the ball drop even in person or on television, you can share this with your friends and family right before the ball drops and I am sure that they will be supremely impressed with your crystal knowledge. I mean what’s New Years without glitter and colors?

That brings me to my next point, the colors of NYE! Many wear red because it’s associated with good luck. If red is not your first color of choice, there are plenty other options to help begin the new year with positive energy. It’s said wearing different colored underwear signify hopes, goals & aspirations for the upcoming year. Yellows means prosperity, wealth & success. Red is the color of passion, romance & love. White is to promote peace, harmony & happiness. Blue is to obtain good health, wellness & tranquility. Green means life, nature & well-being. Pink means luck in love & harmony. I guess if you want all of these attributes in the upcoming year, you wear multicolored underwear!

New Years is a time for rejuvenation and revaluation. If wearing specially chosen underwear or meditating about the new year help you to be at peace with the past year and be excited about the upcoming one, then do it all!

All things Color, Love & Fashion,
