When I saw this weeks theme for the Gallery was colour, I thought of this picture straight away, even though I may have shared it with you before at some point in the past. My children often tell me that they love having ginger hair, they love that people come up to us in the street and tell them what beautiful hair they have and they love that not many other people in school have the same colour hair as them.
At this point I could get on my soap box and tell you that I’ve come across some ridiculously titled facebook groups lately, the most recent of which being ‘Always be yourself (unless you’re ginger, then be someone else)’ or I could remind you of the whole Tesco Christmas card debacle the year before last where they ended up withdrawing a controversial card from their stores due to the level of offence it caused and the number of complaints they recieved about it – I can’t remember the exact message but I think it was something along the lines of ‘Santa loves all children – even ginger ones’.
But I’m not going to do that 😉 I’m going to tell you that having ginger hair is one of the things (just one of them) that makes my children unique and special and it should be celebrated. So here’s my ginger tribute, to my two beautiful little gingernuts.
