Red Letter Day

September 9, 2014 – Day 365

Here’s what I’ve learned today about a certain aspect of Thai culture.

Each day of the week has its own lucky color and unlucky color.

For those of you coming to Thailand and want to make sure that you are on the right side of luck, I offer you the following guide on what to wear.

Monday = yellow
Tuesday = pink
Wednesday = green
Thursday = orange
Friday = blue
Saturday = purple
Sunday = red

On the other side of the luck coin, here are the colors to avoid.

Monday = red
Tuesday = yellow and white
Wednesday = pink
Thursday = purple
Friday = black and dark blue
Saturday = green
Sunday = blue

Hmmm…today is Tuesday and I am wearing a Hawaiian shirt that is mostly black with red flowers along with khaki shorts.

Maybe I could find some pink socks.
