Different colors of progress bars - meaning?

I am noticing for the first time tonight that some lessons give me a green progress bar, others a blue one, and still others a red one. What do the different colors mean? If the bar is red, does that mean I'm doing something wrong? Am I working too slowly? I'm having a hard time figuring this out. This is in reference to the new 'lessons' progress bar, not the "strengthening" bar. Thanks to anyone who can help explain this.

It is a different color according to the color of the skill. That's all. :) By the way, the Christmas skill is purple.

I must say that the first time I got a red progress bar it freaked me out a bit. And as it kept growing I felt less and less comfortable. Shows how we read meaning into colors.

Me too! I was confused at first because the picture they used to introduce the feature only showed that it could be green or blue so when I saw the red it unnerved me a bit! :) It would be fun if we could customize lil such things.

Absolutamente, Lorenzo. As that bar kept on growing, remaining red, I kept trying to answer faster to see if I could get just one blue or green segment out of it, haha. :)

No, as far as I have been using the progress bar, it just depends on the skill theme

I think someone was just in a creative, colorful mood. I'm pretty sure it doesn't relate to your progress.
