ople accept the gift often does not light up with pleasure, and notto open the gift, think it is not polite, and can give a person leave "money","greedy" impression, or let a person feel overly concerned to accept the gift.Often in after the guests left, or back home quietly opened the gift.In the west, people accept the gift, think of the first is grateful. Therefore, in order to express gratitude, they often face carefully open the gift, shout and wrangle more praise, excited when still hug you, and you share the happiness. Sometimes in the wedding ceremony, the host will also guestbrought gifts for a show, to add to the happy effect.Although there are cultural differences so great in the gifts China and western,but this is not to say that western culture is superior to China culture, also cannot say Chinese culture shows hypocrisy, western culture show honestside.First of all, any habit, as long as a courtesy, have certain hypocrisy, or conversely, all is one kind of good faith performance. Some Americans meet a person then greeting: "Hi, how are youDoing?" Let you feel very warm, in fact, maybe he just pretended not to have seen you, or perhaps simply do not want to continue to talk to you. Even so,etiquette told him to make you very well. Chinese say hello, a simple "hello",does not mean that Chinese indifference, but only that a pragmatic attitudeChinese and laconic style.Similarly, Westerners to open their gifts, shout and wrangle to praise it, hemay not care about your gift etiquette, just tell him he should express gratitude, on the surface at least should show strong interest, so as not to damage the other's feelings. And after the Chinese as guests came just quietlyopened the gift, one is not to give each other to greed impression, two isChinese generally focus on present practical value, if a gift is not practical, orsend a duplicate, also not make each other down. Therefore, etiquette told him that he should not be too concerned about the gift. This behavior Chineseis in fact to convey a signal: I to your gifts, or whether the weight of the gift is not interested, even if your gifts are still popular, also won't affect our relationship. However, this signal sometimes need to Westerners go slowlyunderstanding.Furthermore, different behavior, Chinese and Westerners tend to have the same mentality, but its external expression is different. For example, in give and receive, Chinese and Westerners to gift show interest is the same: giverswant each other to be like her gift, and recipients also because of accepting agift. However, Chinese often manifested great modesty, when the gifts are often deliberately undermine their own value of the gift. Even give each other gifts are expensive, but also to say "a mere trifle, nothing". This negative topositive send gifts worth, Westerners can not understand, they don't know how this circle is, or is unable to realize negative, hidden in the affirmative.Accept the gift, Chinese often refuse it, and said, "Oh, also brought the giftwhat to do", to take in each other again insisted, that even also accepted as it cannot be helped, and accompanied by "how can let you back" or "next time can't so polite" or "not to be taken as a precedent" kind words, then the gifts aside, showing the gift be indifferent to attitude, for fear that the other think they are blunt gifts to others. However, just after the guests left, then quietlyopened the gift in the act, is sufficient to prove the Chinese also care about the recipient, just not to show it.
