: that is part of the Korean culture. It talks about the significance
: of the color red to the Korean culture and how women dye their
: fingernails red with a plant for good luck.
Thanks for that link. Reading about it sounds vaguely what I had
heard, (I was told the story that if it lasted until the first snows,
love will grow), but at the same time, it was definatly the leaves and
not the petal, and definatly bright orange, not red.
I can make these claims because looking at my fingernails right now,
four of them are dyed. :(
That's what you get for being gullable. :)
