History of Redhead Day
The redhead people were bullied for their appearance, and were called as “gingers.” There was even a day called “Kick a ginger day” which was created just to insult the people with red hair. Centuries back, the redheads were considered as witches and that they had no soul. Hence, they must be kicked. The redheads eventually started to feel very weak and powerless. To end all these injustice, two revolutionary redhead sisters namely Adrianne and Stephanie Vendetti came up with a Nationally recognized day specially for the redheads in the year 2015. They also created a website “How to be a Redhead” and authored “How to be a redhead” beauty book. These efforts have empowered a lot of redheads and is continuing to do so.
