Red is what I am seeing after paying £170 for my car service. But honestly, the colour red is an amazing colour. Without red our lives would be pretty blue. So to honour this wonderful colour, we are making the 24th of November 2005 RED Day, and to mark the occassion, I have come up with some interesting facts about the colour RED .

If there was no red, then the following would be a little strange:

* Would you listen to magenta hot chilli peppers?
* Would you eat Blue Lobster from La Tania?
* Would you eat Green meat from a cow?
* Would you drink Purple Bull?
* A crime story with black herrings would be confusing.
* Greenhat would not be a successful linux package.
* Do you think the White Cross would have helped billions of people with their charities?
* Simply Grey’s music would have been aimed at the old folks.
* Would you want to watch the Yellow Arrows perform amazing death defying tricks in the sky?
* Amsterdam wouldn’t be a popular city with stag parties if it was known as the light blue District.
