A Spirited Splash of Purple

How do you look in purple?

Tomorrow, wear it anyway.

On Oct. 20 celebrities and common folk will don purple clothing to show support for LGBT youth.  Purple represents spirit on the rainbow flag, and the day is being called Spirit Day.

Not Spirits Day, mind you—that would be either Halloween or a coast-to-coast whiskey festival.

Going purple for a day began last year as a response to the rash of bullying-induced suicides.  So tomorrow consider slipping into something purple to show your feelings about bullying.

Even if you think purple makes you look like Barney.
