Head of the Class

October 1, 2010

According to Vietnamese tradition, the bride’s family must present the head of a pig to the groom’s family prior to the wedding night. If the virginity of the bride is called into question, the groom’s family returns the pig’s head to the bride’s family the following morning, after slicing off its ears.

Dumb Luck, p.103, Footnote 6
