Not a Green Hat in China

Fun Fact:  “To wear a green hat” means “to be a cuckold” in Chinese slang; thus, you won’t find too many proud folks wearing derbies today in China, not that St. Paddy’s Day is much of a hit here anyway.

I read that somewhere.  Can’t for the life of me remember in what.  But Christina’s students verified that, in fact, no self-respecting Chinese man would be caught dead in a green hat when she explained the St. Patrick’s Day deal to them.

I wonder if “to be after one’s lucky charms” means anything….
