Humans often fear the unknown and fixate on it until it becomes an obsession. That’s especially true when you think about redheads. Since they are rare in nature, people with red hair often face stigma, and that’s shown throughout history.
In fact, most cultures had mixed opinions when it came to those with red hair, and it went on throughout the centuries. Most people don’t understand why they are so rare, which led communities to believe they were supernatural or even magical beings. However, most of that isn’t true. Here’s what you never knew about redheaded people.
Research indicates that those with red hair are more likely to be left-handed because of the recessive trait in their DNA. Only a small amount of people are left-handed in the world, which affects roughly 10 to 15 percent of the population.
National Redhead Day
National Redhead Day is on November 5 of every year. The annual celebration is called Love Your Red Hair Day in the USA. However, other countries celebrate, as well. The holiday was established to show appreciation for those with the rare color so that they feel loved.
