Green has become one of the most popular colors of 2021, alongside brown. These two colors, especially together, contrast each other so perfectly. But for all my life, all I have known people to do is hate on the color green. People always said how it was a gross color. Reminded them of gross things.  Now, everyone I’ve talked to seems to love the color.


And don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it is finally getting the appreciation it deserves. Just why all the sudden people are coming to understand the depth of the color green? Everyone knows the most popular color in the world is blue. The second favorite colors are red and green, followed by orange, brown and purple. But after 2021 green might just take the top spot. And honestly, it deserves it. Green is the color of nature, of plants and trees. It’s become a statement piece, if you have a green couch, you are basically the coolest person ever. Green is the color of wealth and fortune. It is overall a happy color associated with happy things.


And the world should be obsessed with green. It’s one of the top tier colors. So bring all the sage green out! Bring all the greens out. It’s time they get the spotlight for once.
