It is said that....In our waking state, colors stimulate emotions. Similarly, colors also stimulate emotions in dreams. Scientific REM studies have proven that we tend to dream in colors but we do not always recall them. The meaning of colors in dreams is not just indicative of the dreamers’ emotional states but also one’s personality traits.
Our focus is on RED so here is a bit of history.
The Meanings of Red. Red is the color of extremes. It's the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure. Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood – energy and primal life forces.
Red is also a magical and religious color. It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks and is the color of the Christian crucifixion. Red was almost as rare and as expensive as purple in ancient days – a fact that may explain its magic and power. Paradoxically, today’s intense red dyes come from crushed insects (the lac beetle and the cochineal).

Enjoy reading up on color history, it can be fascinating. One of the hardest classes to take is color theory, mixing colors and matching colors is not as easy as it sounds! Try taking a piece of colored paper and try to duplicate that color with inks or paints.
