If ever I felt like the most clueless doofus on Chinese Traditions, this following exchange that took place between another mother-in-law, sister-in-law and bride-to-be, sure makes me feel I am not alone…
During her move in ceremony, the bride brought over her brand new wardrobe to dress the bridal chamber.

This particular bride sported more than a few dark pieces. In fact, her entire wardrobe consisted of black clothes.
Spying this, her mother-in-law (MIL) complained to her daughter. “Who is she mourning for? We’re not dead, yet!”
