Chinese Culture References

Have you ever wondered why Red is a lucky color?

And when you ask an ethnic Chinese, they just answer because...

Or why certain foods are eaten on Chinese New Year. And the answer you get is tradition. Or you ask why are there Oranges at a Chinese Wedding? And the answer you get is tradition!

May be it's my Engineering background, but I like to understand why things are. What has helped me is the book Good Luck Life. It's the best reference I have seen on Chinese Culture in English. I have a copy at my desk. It's great for both people who grew up in the Chinese culture as well as those new to it.
