Yes, LennyeTran. But there is something strange in my country. In wedding, the bride often wears a long white dress because it is purity. But in funeral, everybody also wears white clothes. I have asked my teacher, she didn't answer my question. I answered her "why white color is purity while it is also bad luck?" :? I don't understand! :roll:


I hope when you find out the answer, you can share with us. :D

I would like to know the answer too.


Although I am Vietnamese I don't know it clearly. White is color which have been interested in most in my country. The pupils from the elementary school to high school most of them have to wear white uniform. The bride like wearing long white dress and in funeral, they often wear white clothes, too. !?!?! What a strange!

Okay, I was checking at wikipedia to see if they actually have an article about white color, and they do. Well, here it is in Vietnamese. You can scroll down at the bottom for the info.

I think the explanation is pretty accurate since we Vietnamese didn't wear white wedding dresses back then. Red was our color for the wedding dresses.

That's nonsense. Personally, I hate pink. And blue is my favorite color.

But you know, when people couldn't tell the baby was a boy or a girl, the parents would dress that baby in either pink or blue to tell others what gender that baby is. When they see a baby in a pink dress, they would automatically think that boy was a girl; and if that baby is in blue clothes, he's a boy. Also, parents would not even try to dress their boys in pink clothes. Little girls can wear both blue and pink, but the boys can't.

I know, that's a tradition here, too. Personally, when I have a baby, it's not gonna wear just blue or pink :D Especially since I dislike pink.
