Say Hello to February, the month of love, the month of Valentine’s Day. And what better colour to wear this month than Red, the colour of passionate love. In 2021, February 5 is designated to be “Wear Red Day”. Red reads romance, power, and demands attention — that’s why we are drawn to red.

Infact it draws attention towards a very serious issue – heart disease. It started in America and ofcourse continues to be an American tradition. But since world has become so interconnected that many of the American days have found great following even in Asia especially if it is for a issue that pertains supporting a large part of our population that suffers from heart disease.
