Blue is my favorite color because it’s the most pleasing to me. It also makes me feel calm. I also like it because I associate the color blue with the winter and that is my favorite season. Many people have found that blue is the color that makes them feel secure, peaceful, and orderly. Not only does it make them feel peaceful, but it also makes people more productive. The color blue is the worlds favorite color because of the peaceful nature attached behind it, for example lakes, oceans, waterfalls, and because the color makes people feel secure.
