'Fairytales are in my head and in my head they start
to tell you bout the deepest thoughts that live inside my heart.'

Just wondering...

When I think of the month of March, the color green comes right along with the thought. This happens to be the only month that I associate with a color -- well, sometimes I see yellow-orange with October.  I sometimes also have a mental image of newly budded grass on hills under a fairy-tale blue sky with maybe some clouds softly floating by.  Yet, green happens EVERY SINGLE TIME. 

March = Green. 

Interestingly enough, green does not equal March. Don't know why :/

I guess green is how I associate and label the month, as this brain operates in the categorizing function. I can only assume that it must be the Irish holiday of St. Patrick's Day that dominates the month for me like this. And perhaps, it was the bulletin boards that I grew up with in grammar school that had such a profound affect on how I still continue to mentally view the month of March. I can still see those four-leaf clovers grow in number as the days passed. Note to the teachers out there: all the hard work on those boards last a lifetime for visual students, so make them count! 

I often wonder if others use color and/or symbol association in their minds for distinguishing classification as well.  

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
