Red is the colour of blood, a ruby, and strawberries. Next to orange at the end of the visible spectrum of light, red is commonly associated with danger, sacrifice, passion, fire, beauty, blood and anger. In China and at Swinton's red is associated with happiness. Why?

Red is the color of sexuality and can stimulate deeper and more intimate passions in us, such as love and sex. It is often used to express love, as in Valentine’s Day, however it relates more to sexuality and lust, rather than love – love is expressed with pink. So don't forget to also pick up some white. :)
