A boy or girl with
bright red or orange hair, typically pale skin, and freckles on the face. The condition of being a ginger is often known as Gingervitus. A child is born
a ginger when
both of the parents
carry the recessive ginger gene. If both parents
are gingers, the gene is sure
to pass on. If both simply carry the recesive, there is a 1 in 4 chance of passing on the gene.
