Fortune telling: superstitions in China

I told you about "Chinese supersitions":
  • Chinese people care a lot of numbers
  • They care about colors
  • They care about festivals
  • They care about shapes
  • They care about food
  • ...
Superstition are based on traditions, ancestral belief, health, medecine, buddhism, farming society.

It is interesting to notice that young people share many older generation "superstitions". Some differs and there are some new supersititons! I will have a survey about this in a future article.

Many Chinese people want to know their fortune.
The bird will select a stick for you and tells you your fortune.
In temple you have a similar fortune telling, just you should throw the stick on the floor
