"white" do have important cultural resemblance in many cultures and subcultures,it does reflects honesty and purity and humbleness of the faithful man,beside its physical property as the best light reflector and its psychological effect for soothing,"white" as color in arabian folklore (as an example) is the first color that embrace a new born baby with white linen,the other transitional period "marrige" in the man/woman life is also wrapped with white color ,and in his final journey , the deceased also should be wrapped after purification ceremony in a white shroud ,so white can summarize the life journey of the human being,but that should not automatically imply only antagonistic role for "black" as a color,but often white and black play harmoniously to enhance perceptive contrast and to envoke aesthetic accentuation.
so why do we love "white"
because we love "life"!
