have you ever heard of the custom/belief that on your your brith day you should wear anything that has the red color on it? well, i do. on my country (philippines) atleast. it has become a cliche that when somebody wears red he/she is in the spotlight of attraction, smiles, and wondering thoughts (is he/she gonna be having a blowout today?..me atleast), and by this, you gonna be the subject of everyone's deceitful minds, considering their only hint is on that piece of color you that your wearing. what your take?

Interesting, this kind of belief. Never heard about it. I am not superstitious, but why red? Why not blue? I mean, is there something special relating to red? I never used red no my birthdays because I wanted. If I did, it was just a coincidence. In my country there isn't this belief (at least, I've never heard about it). Interesting, it's always good to know another country's culture and beliefs.

I am from Brazil. In my whole life, never heard about it, really. I try to imagine myself, on my birthday, trying to find a red T-shirt on my wardrobe!
