A word:

Mercury

Queen:

Queen is a rock band. One of the members is Freddie Mercury.

Letter:

Mercury is the Roman god of messages and communication (and hence, letters). (I'm not completely satisfied with this one, but it works.)

Thermometer:

Many thermometers are (were? I'm not sure if they still are) made with mercury in them.

Answer:

red

Queen

A deck of cards contains four queens, including the Queen of Hearts (who was a character in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) and the Queen of Diamonds — both of which are red.
Also, Through the Looking-Glass features a (different) character called the Red Queen.

Letter

"Red letter day" is an idiom meaning a special day, or a holiday.

Thermometer

Thermometers often contain alcohol with red dye for visibility.

  • $\begingroup$ This (and Will's suggestion) was my first thought, but I didn't submit it as an answer because I wasn't sure if, by "directly associated", it meant what those words normally mean, or it meant "a common phrase is made by combining the words" $\endgroup$ – question_asker Apr 7 '16 at 11:33
