Morelia, Mich., December 31, 2022. – While walking through any market or downtown, you can spot red and yellow underwear displayed to welcome the new year, and many wishes for love and prosperity to come.
At a market, Gabi, an underwear merchant, serenades a couple. She’s looking for some yellow panties because she wants her to do better financially. “After all, I already have love,” he says upon seeing his companion who asks for some red underwear, which generates the assertion; “It’s to keep fanning the flame,” he quickly replies.
Later, when there are no more customers to attend, he reiterates what everyone already knows: “Red is actually for love, to attract love, and yellow is usually for money. Yes, this is what is being handled.”, the merchant tells Quadrilateral.
Although there are no panties in sight other than red and yellow, Gabi says that green underwear is believed to bring good health, white ones bring peace and harmony to the house, she assures.
The cheapest dress costs 30 pesos. “These others that are more exotic, at 35”, she says, showing a sort of yellow thong. The most expensive is 50 pesos, and it is of very good quality, he explains at the moment he takes another red panties with ruffles; “The clothes are very sexy, 35 years old are cheap and they are like that, it’s a matter of taste,” he says.
The trader assures that there are two dates in which he makes maximum sales. The first is before December 24 for Christmas exchanges. Second, when it sells the most is before New Year’s celebrations, and although it’s not known whether it really works, she says that having willpower and a good attitude are also essential.
