alias_sqbr: Hannelore: Worry hat! Bravery plus 10, charisma plus 5 (worry hat)
[personal profile] alias_sqbr
The in-laws who invited us have lived in Australia for over a decade, so will be expecting us to be clueless, but it would be nice to avoid any major impoliteness. I know wearing black and white is considered bad luck for Chinese new year, but all I could find about Korean new year is that hanboks are traditional, and that's not really an option. I guess...something nice? BUT HOW NICE.

A page suggested red and gold for Chinese new year, but idk if that would come across as polite or SO YOU ARE BASICALLY CHINESE RIGHT.

I asked my brother for advice but having seen how blase he was about Hannukah I don't have huge faith in his ability to notice or care about this stuff.

We should probably be giving gifts of money to the children?? Gifts make me so anxious /o\ I'm going to wait on that for next year, I think, trying to guess how to do it is just too scary. Especially because I don't know for sure how many kids are coming, and only getting some of them gifts would be way worse than getting none.

Still, I guess at least I have an excuse for feeling clueless about these social mores.

Take a gift, even a small one, for your hosts - nicely packaged food is a very popular gift. You don't have to give money to kids who are not your direct relatives, so don't worry about that. Any bright colour is good to wear.
