In honor of National Crayon Day on March 31st, Crayola has announced that it will retire one color from its mainstay 24-count box. The question is, which one?

This will be the first change for the iconic box of crayons, which has inspired so many billions of drawings, in over 100 years. Colors have been retired before, but this will be the first time one has gotten the boot from the two dozen sold in its best-selling box.

While Crayola offers 120 different colors, those currently featured in the 24-count box include: red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, black, carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, red orange, yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean, apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo and gray. When you consider the fact that some of these are basically just repeats (what exactly is the difference between yellow green and green yellow?!) it might not be so sad to say goodbye.

One must go to make room for a brand new color yet to be unveiled — and you can help make the decision. Crayola has invited fans to post on Instagram which color they simply can’t live without, along with the hashtag #ShareYourFave.

Which color do you think should be the one to go? Tell us in the comments!
