Crayola Announces Color Retirement Ahead of Crayon Day

Ahead of National Crayon Day on Friday, Crayola announced Thursday the dandelion color would be taken out of circulation. 

Crayola said earlier this week that it would mark National Crayon Day by retiring one of its colors.

Crayola originally planned to announce which color is being retired on a Facebook live stream Friday morning.

But on Twitter Thursday afternoon, the company wrote: "Our beloved Dandelion decided to announce his retirement early! There’s no taming an adventurous spirit!"
