Happy Color Holidays

January 1, 2022

During last year’s Holidailies, I wrote an entry about how much I was enjoying the Happy Color app. Over a year later, I still am. The transition from Android to Apple when I got my new phone went fairly well. I was able to transfer my completed photos and able to re-download the bonus photos from the progress awards. I did have to pay again to keep ads from interrupting my coloring, and in the time between when I paid via the Google Play store and when I paid again on Apple, they’d taken away the free hints for paid users feature, which annoyed me at first but now I don’t mind having to watch an ad to get a hint if I need it. It’s probably good for me to take a break and look into the distance for 30 seconds now and then anyway.

I’ve spent the last few weeks of Happy Coloring doing holiday pictures. There are too many of them for me to do them all in a timely manner, and that’s been a good exercise for my brain, letting go of wanting to collect the complete set. Even though I hadn’t finished all the Christmas ones I’d started, yesterday I started even more from the Holidays tab, choosing mostly New Year’s ones.

This tiger is a bit early for Chinese New Year, but that’s okay:

There was a vintage postcard:

There was a city with fireworks for the New Year:

And because it’s Happy Color, there was this what the heck image of cat with flaming eyes and holly on its collar being held on a leash by a woman with a Barbarella-esque vibe who is only partially dressed for the winter weather:

Happy New Year to all of you reading this! May our 2022 bring more joy than sadness.
