Funny story: I found out today from a Chinese coworker that apparently in China it’s bad news for a man to be wearing a green hat, or to be given a green hat as a gift – a green hat is a sign that your wife has been unfaithful, or is possibly a woman of negotiable virtue. So when he emigrated to Canada, he tells me, his first week here was a weird, confusing, hilarious week.
He arrived just before St. Patrick’s Day.
Put yourself in that man’s shoes, and tell me that you don’t just laugh and laugh. “They’re having a parade!?”
