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.
