Purple Party

You may have noticed that we like purple here at It’s kind of our colour.

But what is purple? Really, the colour purple is the combination of red, a colour sometimes associated with agitation, heat, passion, and anger, and blue, which is sometimes identified with serene, calm and, well, depression. Put all those together and you get the well-balanced prettiness known as purple.
