Importance of tradition in modern society
Tradition impacts a lot in modern society. For example in Chinese culture, Feng Shui, tradition festival and beliefs have been impacted in modern society.
People mainly used it when they built their house or building. Feng Shui consultants are hired for telling people that how to improve their lives by decorating the house with different things. Most of the Chinese believe Feng Shui will bring them good luck.
Gemstone is the most common thing that people use to decorate their house. However, some people are ignorantly belief in this and some think it is silly. For my family, we do not believe in this because feng shui is not scientific and things are controlled by ourselves. And it is expensive to decorate our house with those kind of feng shui.
There are many tradition festivals in Chinese culture. For example, Lunar New Year is the most important festival. All the Chinese have a gathering with all the family members during Lunar New Year. Actually, we will have some traditional food with our family, for example, turnip cake. Until now, Chinese still celebrate Lunar New Year. Chinese will buy new clothes and things during Lunar New Year because this represents a new start and they believe new things will bring them luck. Red pockets are one of the most important things in Lunar New Year. Older generation gives red pocket to the child and this represent give them luck for the coming year. Lunar New Year also brought us three public holidays, so that people can have a rest and celebrate.
Chinese people mainly believe in Buddha in the past. People who believe in Buddha do not eat meat. There are still people believe in Buddha and they go to the temple on the specific date in Buddhism. Actually going to temple, they put a statue of Buddha in their home so that they can worship Buddha every day. For my family, we would not worship Buddha at home but actually my grandma...
