Friday, March 31 is National Crayon Day. To celebrate the day, the makers of Crayola Crayons will retire one of its colors. This has never been done before in the 100-year history of Crayola Crayons. On Friday, the crayon company is officially retiring a color from its 24-count box. As of now, nobody knows which color will be retired. Even the color doesn't know its job has ended.

Announcement will be made

Crayola will make the announcement on Friday morning that one color will no longer be in the box of crayons. The announcement will be made in Times Square and livestreamed on Facebook.

Even though people have speculated and offered suggestions, the public doesn't get to vote on the piece that will retire. When Monopoly retired some of its classic pieces earlier this month, the public did get to vote on which pieces they wanted out and the ones they wanted in. However, once the color is removed, another color will not take its place.

Social media reactions

On social media, the news of a color of crayon leaving the box brought sadness to some. They questioned why after all these years one color has to retire at all.

Others spoke up and suggested the pieces they think should leave the box because they are not used as much.

People have been sharing images and comments of the color they can't live without. According to the comments, any one of the pieces could be in danger of leaving. That's not logical. How can you paint an image without red, blue, black, brown or some of the other primary colors?

Someone suggested white. That's logical except when you want to color something white on a dark background.

If you have a box of 24 crayons, keep it safe. Once the color is retired, the box could become valuable if it has the retired piece. Who knows? You might be able to sell your box of Crayola Crayons on eBay for much more than you paid for it. Stay tune for the announcement on Friday morning to find out which color will leave the box. In the meantime, prepare to say "good-bye" to one of the colors. Which color do you think it will be?
