Purple

..is the colour of Lent. Penitential.

Purple, preferably a sombre, dark shade, is worn during the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent. Purple signifies great solemnity, with connotations of both penance and royal dignity.

And here is my new purple top ~ very penitential? Not!

I also bought a new purple t-shirt for son Alexander. Purple is his favourite colour and, judging by the winter clothing on display in the stores, for the next season, purple is also a trendy ( in) colour right now.

Trendy and Lenten at the same time. 🙂

  1. Purple’s one of my favourite colours too; well, a particular aubergine-y kind of purple- orchard, I’ve seen it called. And my favourite shirt in this colour just died. Sob! I mean it really died and I can’t wear it ever again. Like the shoes!
