The national entrance examinations forcolleges are coming soon. Students of senior 3 are fighting for the last fewdays. Meanwhile, it is also a hard time to exam their parents. They want to dosomething for their kids, such as offering good food for their kids, takinggood care of their daily life and so on. In other words, parents who have kidspreparing for this big national exams worry much more than their kids in a way,so they try to do something, even though it is ridiculous. Here is an example. Accordingto a report, May 21st is the last 15th of a month beforethe college entrance exams of 2016. Many parents went to a tree standing infront of Mao Tan Factory Middle School and prayed “good luck” from it in rainfor their kids. They hurried to be the first one to offer incense in a narrowstreet. As a bystander, I think it is ignorant.
Does it work? When we hope to get “good luck” from a tree, there issomething wrong with our mind. It is not a single case in China. You can go tothe temples to do a survey and you will see how many people have been there topray for the same expectation. It becomes a common thing in China. Is it abelief?
Do you have any ideas about it?
