I've been seeing pink flamingos EVERYWHERE this holiday season...lit up lawn ornaments, tree ornaments, tinseled decoration, gift tag labels... WHY?!

We even have one hanging here in our Cat Country studios, and I just simply don't understand...

What is the meaning of a Flamingo during Christmas?

Well, I have NO idea, but I found some answers as to what a Flamingo symbolizes:

According to Wiki,

Flamingos symbolize beauty, balance, and grace.

Flamingos are also pink, which can be used to symbolize femininity and innocence, among other characteristics.

Flamingos also tend to represent confidence. Often flirtatious. Bold.

I also found from Spirit Animal Totems that if you come across flamingos frequently:

Flamingos remind you to get in touch with your emotions. Allow yourself to feel so that you can process your emotions and grow from what you feel. If you are bottling things up you will find your self reacting rather than acting appropriately. Allow yourself to release your feelings so that you can come into balance again.


Alternatively Flamingo may be letting you know that it is time for you to get out and socialize and have some fun in your life. This will be helpful in letting go of stressful situations and coming to terms with changes in your life. Know that new ideas and options will be revealed to you by immersing yourself in the company of others and allowing yourself to balance in gratitude for what you have. Appreciate those around you.

So after reading that, I've come to the conclusion that Flamingos may in fact have absolutely NOTHING to do with Christmas... and that I need to have a SERIOUS reality check with myself.

If there's an another answer to this that I'm unaware of can someone PLEASE let me know before I go insane with the attack of the flamingos...THANKS.
