The Secret Meanings Behind Every Porch Light Color
The Covington Domestic Violence Task Force incorporates purple in its Purple Light Nights campaign to highlight and eliminate domestic abuse, as per Home Decor Bliss.
Many homes change to purple porch lights to indicate their participation in Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October and support for those affected by abusive relationships.
February is American Heart Month, and homeowners swap in red porch lights during this time as a reminder to people, especially women, to check their cardiovascular health.
This contributes to The American Heart Association’s Illuminate Your Home Red movement to bring awareness to heart health, and even national landmarks light up in red in support.
Blue porch lights promote the Autism Speaks’ Light It Up Blue autism awareness campaign in line with Autism Awareness Month in April and World Autism Awareness Day on April 2.
Blue porch lights can also convey support for the police force and their families. They can be used at any time of the year to honor the police for their sacrifice and dedication.
