There’s such thing as panty traditions, did you know that? New year, new you, new undies! I guess I have been hiding underneath a rock (or inside someone’s underwear drawer?) because I did not know this until recently.
So, in some countries/cultures, it’s most common in Latin America, the color underwear one wears on New Year’s night indicates the kind of year that one is going to have. Men and women are both included. Red indicates a year of passion and love (duh!), yellow indicates a year of happiness, luck and success, and white indicates a year of fresh starts. Polka dots will supposedly bring prosperity.
What an unusual traditions, almost as unusual as wearing your undies inside out. My opinion? It can’t hurt to try. I missed this year, but I have about 350 days to determine (and make) underwear for the next NYE. WWMD? What will Maddie do? Polka dots? Blue? Green? Would it be wrong, and/or terribly ugly, to make a colorblocked lingerie set? Nah yo.
A specific color might not guarantee the kind of year you or I want, but I believe it can help put you in the right mentality so that you will achieve it. Those are my parting words…
Your turn. Have you heard of this tradition? Ever worn a particular color undies on NYE?
