I don't think it's a stupid question at all!

In Italy, for instance, you should neve ever wore purple when going to the theatre or in any other venue where there is a *show* going on. That's considered bad luck, worse than mentioning the Scottish Play aloud on stage!

That's because the colour purple is the colour connected to the Christian Lent, when in Medieval times shows of any kind (theatre, street show etc) were forbidden, thus the actors literally starved for a month!

I always wondered if there is a similar "bad" colour in theatre in UK or US linked to some similar tradition.

Thanks Tracy,

We want to visit places around London. Museums are high on our list. Historical places as well. Too bad Gardens will be out because of winter. So, I don't know where best to stay. What is the best way for tourists to travel about the place?

Who Gabe said that she would stay at a B &B and go to places with that as her home base. Sounds like a plan. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to traveling. Eating places around is something that I'd like to explore as well. We always like to try local cuisine. It is also good to know about places to avoid.

Gabe, in the U.S. People pretty much wear whatever they want to. Though you wouldn't want to wear a bikini to church mind you. There is common sense, lol.

A friend of mine from Lebanon said that there were some colors that you should never wear in the parts of the middle east. I think bright yellow is one.
