Q: What is one Chinese tradition that you just don’t understand and what is one from your culture that you suspect others would say the same thing about?

gaeatiamat – Chinese ghost marriages. I don’t get this at all. A Western/American etc equivalent would be superstitions about black cats and walking under ladders.

that! ghost marriage. i heard there are a lot of young girls corpse got “kidnapped” to be married with some family’s unmarried dead son.
no offense. but it’s a crime to steal a corpse.
also a supertition about number 4

at my place, single girls are heavily adviced to not stand/sit in front of the door. old folks say, it can caused the girl difficult to get married.
well, for modern people, it just means that you’re blocking the way😂

Filial piety; sure, parents everywhere want to be respected & listened to, but any culture where they’ve a heavy hand in their kids’ lives, beyond childhood, demand (and get) FP even if they were crap, that’s bizarre to me. They’ve their own lives to live & didn’t ask to be born. Parents made a choice & have a duty, kids owe them nothing.
In UK… buying everyone cakes at work, when it’s YOUR birthday 😆 & Stag/Hen nights where everyone just gets obscenely drunk… yuck.

at the funeral, waiting for several days with this kind of banquet, i’m a little uneasy with it.

in France, when you come to a little store, you have to say “hello” to the owner : bakery, bookshop etc. Or you take the risk to receive a bad welcome, even if you buy all the goods in the shop. the customer is a king, but here, there is a limit hahaha
