(aired 10/29/10)black
Although orange is certainly the main color of Halloween, the other complimentary hue is black. So today’s show is in celebration of this tone — and all its various meanings.

So far Maya’s Mix has explored other colors as well:   blue (August ’10), green (March ’10), red (December ’09) and gold/silver (August ’09). Now we can celebrate the irony of a color that is also considered achromatic, as it is technically hueless.

Turn off the lights and get ready to enjoy this Black Friday!
