A ~ Z of Marvelousness: R is for Red Hair

Red Hair

  • Red hair is the rarest natural hair color in humans and the term redhead has been in use since around 1510.
  • It is believed that redheads have fiery tempers and sharp tongues...
  • Redhead Day is celebrated in the Netherlands every September. The two-day festival is a gathering of people with natural red hair. Marvelous...                                                                           

    1. Redhead Day in Netherlands? That's awesome! I may have to visit then.

    2. I’m a red head - but when people compliment my hair I say, “thanks I’ll tell my hairdresser.”

    3. Plenty of redheads in Ireland :)

    4. That's so interesting, I can't believe there's a special day for redheads! I have read about how rare red hair is and was quite surprised. Mind you, when you see a redhead, they certainly seem to stand out in a crowd.

      Have fun with a-z.

    5. some of my best friends are redheads!

    6. We call them "gingers" here ! That is awesome that there is a special day redheads in the Netherlands!

      Thanks for sharing!

    9. I like how the U.K. refers to red hair as ginger. Much more accurate term, I think.
