In most Asian countries, black is the colour of mourning. Black is often seen as a colour of rebellion among the younger generation people. Nowadays, we see more young people wearing black during Chinese New Year. :(
Black tablecloth, black furniture, black menu....
For the older Chinese, we like to be seen in red during festive celebrations and auspicious occasions. So when we attended Chinese weddings which have 'black' as their theme, we are horrified. :P
