It's described as a vivid orange hue. Pantone Color Institute says it will be the color of 2010. It's a color called Tangerine Tango.

 

It looks to me like a color that was prominent in the 70's. Oh man!, let's do not go back to those days.

Tangerine Tango is a color that Pantone says expresses courage, energy and it encourages. Look for this color in everything from fashions to cosmetics.

So if you are looking for a Christmas present, look for something in tangerine tango.
