Quora精选:为何外国人喜欢早上洗澡?

Why do most Americans take a shower after they wake up in the morning?
为什么大多数美国人早上醒来之后要去洗个澡?

I'm Chinese. What I know is that nearly all Chinese people take showers at night. Why do Americans take a shower in the morning which drives them to wake up earlier? And I also want to know which countries take a shower in the morning like America, and which countries take a shower at night like China.

我是个中国人。据我所知,几乎所有的中国人都是晚上的时候洗澡。为什么美国人大早上地洗澡呢?这能让他们醒得早一点吗?还有,我想知道哪个国家的人像美国人那样早上洗澡,哪个国家又像中国人那样在晚上洗澡。

I'm an American-born Chinese who has lived in China for a total of over 20 years, so this is a question that I get all the time. Among everyday habits and, the shower-in-the-morning vs. shower-in-the-evening is one of the real lines of demarcation between Chinese and westerners, and neither my Chinese-born parents (who never lost the evening shower habit even after 40 years in the US) nor my wife, who's from Beijing, ever get tired of asserting the supremacy of the PM shower. And I've never kicked the AMablutions habit.

I shower in the morning because it really wakes me up, and provides me with this nice mindless routine during which I can think about my day. It also keeps my hair from looking strange. On warmer days where I've conspicuously sweated during the day I'll take a quick shower and not wash my hair in the evening, but I find that taking a shower right before bed makes it more difficult for me to fall asleep, possibly because I associate showering with wakefulness.

I fully understand the Chinese preference for the evening shower. You're clean andcomfy, bedding probably doesn't need to be washed as frequently and so forth. But I just need that morning shower to feel fully awake—kind of like that morning coffee!
