Why do we have a day for Rainbows?
The objective of this day was to bring out the awareness of the colors and above all the world is full of beauty and colors. This is the idea behind a day devoted to rainbows, because you can‘t help smiling when you see the bright, cheery bands of color.
What are Rainbows?
Rainbows Are Optical Illusions. Similar to a mirage, a rainbow is formed when light rays bend, creating an effect that is visible, but not able to be touched or approached. For rainbows, light is reflected and refracted through water droplets, separating white light into the seven colors of the spectrum.
What do Rainbows mean?
Many cultures believe that rainbows are a symbol of hope, promise, encouragement, good fortune, and new beginnings. For some reason we see rainbows as a “sign” that they have been looking for. Sometimes they see it as a sign for a change (new beginning). Some people believe that a rainbow is a loved one saying hello or smiling down on them.
To me, rainbows are the promise after the storm. After a storm in my life, or a long, hard struggle, I often see a rainbow. It fills me with hope that better days are coming my way. They fill me with encouragement, that I am a survivor. Rainbows remind me of God’s promises and love.
When I see a rainbow I feel loved. I get a sense of warmth and I always smile. I don’t feel lonely when I see a rainbow and I often find myself saying hello to someone that is no longer here with me.
