Why is TikTok obsessed with French pharmacy signs? – Yahoo! Voices

Rave fans can’t get enough of French pharmacy signs on TikTok.
What is inflation and what causes it?
In Europe, a green cross is a commonly used symbol for medical care. During the Cannes Film Festival, American tourists couldn’t help but notice that French pharmacy signs had a little something extra. Most French pharmacies have giant green LED crosses with flashing animations that convey information like time and temperature. People on TikTok are comparing the signage to techno lights.
See this tiny New York apartment get an impressive redesign in one day with a $1,000 budget:
“Pharmacy signs in France hit different,” @thewollium said in a video.
The clip showed the green LED sign while techno music played in the background.
“This looks like a early 90s music video,” a user wrote.
“Canceling the rave tonight, staying with my group staring at the pharmacy sign,” a person joked.
“Omg I never thought about it before now, because I grew up seeing them, but you’re totally right,” another said.
The popular video racked up over 1 million views and prompted the French pharmacy sign trend.
Some people like @cattarinassoares are tracking down the signs to throw their own mini raves at night, dancing in the glow of the green cross.
Others, like @jedras_420, seek out the different pharmacy signs’ styles. This one was a cross inside a disc-shaped LED with the same quick animations.
TikToker @slaylantica captured a similar sign in Greece, writing in the caption, “The graphic designer of Euro’s pharmacies need a pay rise.”
The use of a cross as a pharmacy symbol originally came about upon the founding of the Red Cross in 1864. The original cross was red on a white background — a symbol the Red Cross nonprofit still uses today.
In 1913, a law ordered pharmacies from using the red cross because it was causing confusion with the charity. Not every pharmacy in France changed the cross, but those that did switched to green.
As to why green, no one knows for sure, but there are two theories: because many medicines are plant-based and because military pharmacists wore green armbands in the 18th and 19th centuries.

When Mexico imposed a visa requirement on Venezuelans in January, it briefly had the desired effect: The number of Venezuelans detained at the U.S.-Mexico border plunged. Suddenly unable to simply fly to Mexico as tourists, but still desperate to leave their country, Venezuelan migrants joined others traveling over land through the dense, lawless jungle on the Colombia-Panama border. In 2021, when Venezuelans could still fly to Cancun or Mexico City as tourists, only 3,000 of them crossed the Darien Gap — a literal gap in the Pan-American Highway that stretches along 60 miles (97 kilometers) of mountains, rainforest and rivers.
U.S. consumer spending barely rose in July, but inflation eased considerably, which could give the Federal Reserve room to scale back its aggressive interest rate increases. Consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, edged up 0.1% last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast consumer spending would gain 0.4%.
