Chones Rojos, Verdes o Amarillos for New Years – The Debate

Today, we were talking chones on Twitter.  It started out with a conversation about Christmas traditions of all things, and before we knew it we were knee deep in chatter about undies.  I’ve always known there was some correlation between what color of underwear one chose to wear on New Year’s Eve and what it was we were hoping for in the next 12 months, I just never knew exactly what it was.

If you’re like me, and you aren’t really that familiar with what to wear for what, here’s a quick quide that will hopefully make this important decision much easier.  I’m kind of thinking of wearing all of these colors at the same time.  It can’t hurt, can it?

  • Red is the color for passion and love.
  • Yellow means happiness and money.
  • Green is the color for good health.
  • Blue represents peace.
  • White is the color for charity.
  • And finally, Orange is the color for intelligence.

  1. I’m definitely cheating too, Tracy! Layering should count for something digo yo… And isn’t that picture by @cancuncanuck so awesome! Couldn’t have asked for a better photo 🙂

  2. I think I am going to have to go on a mission to photograph every yellow/red underwear display in Cancun! (There are many!)

    Thanks for sharing Juan, you cracked me up. Loved our chones conversation yesterday!

  3. CancunCanuck, your picture made my day… and the chones talk was the highlight of my day! I’d heard of this tradition before, now I may actually start practicing it… is that TMI??

    Brenda, if you find all of these colors in one, let me know… jajaja! not that we could wear the same style of undies or anything… Ay Dios Mio! There I go again, metiendo la pata otra vez 🙂

    I will be stalking all of you come NYE to get a peek of your chones!

  5. What? I had no idea that different colored chonies meant different things on New Years Eve. I think everyone needs to link up on NYE and share their chonies haha.
