In celebration for longevity

Celebration for longevity originated in medieval times, and became popular during Tokugawa shogunate.  When any person related to you is reaching the following ages,  please celebrate her/his birthday with the designated color of each age:

 

61-year old ... Red

(In one traditional way of counting ages, one cycle ends at the age of 61, and we call it as returning to a baby.)

 

70-year old ... Purple

77-year old ... Purple

80-year old ... Purple

88-year old ... Yellow

90-year old ... Purple

99-year old ... White

100-year old ... Pink
