  1. Great stuff, Kim! I’d heard that before about Santa Claus – and I used to think he’d been red for centuries. Isn’t it funny that green cars are considered unlucky in races, what with the colour being so positive, and associated with go.

    “Fact: Traffic lights are green in all countries.” Hmm, we have red ones here as well, and even some amber 😉

    • Me too, my grandmother had an old Santa she used to set out, as a kid I didnt like it because he wore a green dress, not red pants boots and fur lined coat. About the green race cars, right now it seems to be a mix of half believing this and half not paying attention. lol on the traffic lights being green, I am so glad you have the yellow and red too. giggles.

    • It can be used as a noun, verb or adjective. If something “is” it’s probably a noun. Green is my favorite color. ” ‘Green’ is receiving the action from the verb, ‘is”. Now if you were to say “Greenish blue is my favorite color,” blue would be the noun, with greenish as an adjective. The color “blue” is still being used as the subject and the noun there. If that makes sense.
      If the word receives the action, and it isn’t modifying or stepping in for another word, chances are that what you are dealing with is a noun.
