Pink is often associated with little girls and dolls like Barbie. Likewise, pink is the most popular color for girls clothing, room furniture and toys in general. Light pink (also known as “baby pink”) is associated with the birth of a female child. It is also associated with women’s causes, such as the movement that promotes finding a cure for breast cancer.

Pink is naturally found in many flowers, sunsets and large birds called flamingos. Pink is usually regarded as being a happy and joyful color. It frequently appears around springtime and the Christian holiday known as Easter. The lighter shades of pink also have a calming effect on people and it is popularly used as a decorative color in tropical resorts and hotels.
