    <p>I notice something funny. Chinese usually don’t open the gift once receive it. We usually open later and express thanks by messages or calling. </p> <p>On the country, western people open the gift as long as receive it and express thanks at once, like “oh, thank you! So lovely! I love it so much. ”</p> <p>Chinese don’t do this. In Chinese mind, it’s not polite or lack of patience to open the gift so fast. Funny difference. </p> <p>What do you usually do when u receive a gift? What do you think of difference?</p>
