Now that we've done this for two years it's interesting to see the change in colors and the words we use to describe our year. As can be expected, love was the most popular word used to describe your colors. And the top 4 words our community chose for 2011 "Love, Hope, Happy, Fun" were almost the same as last year's "Love, Happy, New Hope." Reds have been the most popular color both years, but 2011's colors are more cooler with more blue, teal, and purple shades.

As always we want to know what you see as the color of the year. We each see the world uniquely and we're here to help you share that wonderful perspective of yours. You can help us shape next year's graphic by naming your own Color of the Year for 2012:
