Learn Chinese with ChineseClass101.com. You are in China with a friend whose mother has just passed away. Because you are close, he has asked you to stay at his house and accompany him to all of the funeral ceremonies. After the funeral, your friend says you can change into something more comfortable. Moments later, you return to the room wearing a pair of jeans and a red shirt. Aghast, your friend shoves you out of the room quickly, explaining in Chinese, “On, no! People will get mad at me if you are wearing red during your stay.” Confused why people would be mad, your friend explains that the Chinese children of the deceased won’t wear red for three years or until someone gets married, and because you are such a close family friend, you are seen as one of the children. Mortified by your mistake, you reply in Chinese, “Certainly they wouldn’t be mad at you, but certainly they would be mad at me.” Dashing from the room, you respectfully change your shirt…after double-checking with your friend this time of course!
