Yellow Monday (1)

In Thailand, there is a color associated with each day of the week:

Monday = Yellow
Tuesday = Pink
Wednesday = Green
Thursday = Orange
Friday = Blue
Saturday = Purple
Sunday = Red

On Monday, many of the Thais dress in yellow, the day of the week on which their king was born, to show respect for him.DSCF3132

After the recent trip to Luoping, Yunnan in China, I am overwhelmed with yellow . . . . I have so many photos showing the yellow canola or rapeseed flowers all over the place. Should I showcase them . . . . . . . . on each Monday??

  1. Interesting! A color for every day of the week. I should try to incorporate that into my dressing. haha maybe I’ll get luckier this way 😀

    • Hi tiny lesson blog, thanks so much for the nomination which I understand is an important award. I have decided not to pursue or accept any nomination / award during my retirement and for this reason, I have already turned down all similar awards. Knowing that my blog is read in many places of the world (over 160 countries) is already my biggest reward. With regret, I have to decline the nomination. Thank you once again for the nomination which is very much appreciated! Best wishes to you also, Michael

  2. Great photo Michael! I love how intense the yellow is, of the flowers, against the subdued blues in the background. It would be fantastic to see a new one of these each Monday. 😀

    • Thank you very much for perusing so many of my posts. Will post as many uplifting yellow pictures as possible on Mondays. Thank you again 🙂

  3. I has no idea – that there was a color associated with each day in Thailand. That is very interesting. I love learning new things through these blogs. I am glad I found yours.

    • Need something to uplift the spirit on Mondays, especially when I was at work. Will upload more yellow pictures Mondays. Thank you for the perusal and the kind comment 🙂

  4. The picture just blew me away. My first reaction was Wow! followed by awesome..I agree with Viveka, it’s like sunshine on the ground. So wonderful! I look forward to your color-themed posts…

    • Glad you like the photo. Actually, this is my first time viewing canola flowers of such extent and I find it breathtaking too. Thank you 🙂

  5. Now this is a fun way to approach the week. Dressing in colours that fit with the days of the week . . . There’s bound to be rebels who wear all blue on Monday, but this is good. Can only imagine this happening in the UK, it would definitely make everyday a bit more interesting and theme based. Thanks for posting this one.

    • It would be fun even if one company’s employers decide to wear the same color together on a certain day. Sorry for the late response, as I have overlooked the comment. Thank you for the kind perusal and comment 🙂
