Synesthesia
Some people see colors in letters or numbers called color-graphemic synesthesia, see colors from sounds call sound-color synesthesia, or taste from hearing or saying certain words call lexical-gustatory synesthesia. 
How do some people have this ability? 
One of the beliefs argues that all people initially have this ability, but because of later stages in neurodevelopment when neuronal pruning occurs people lose the ability. The individuals who do not go through this process completely may have synesthesia.
Other arguments for how one can have synesthesia include cross-wiring of neurons, or atypical functioning of the ‘association area’ in the brain. Synethesia specifically color-graphemic can be induced through taking hallucinating drugs such as Magic Mushroom.

Well that’s silly. Why would they make the 5s green and the 2s red? Don’t they know that 5s are brown and 2s are pink? SMH.
