Chinese Tradition

By: Joshua L.

Every year the Chinese community gather togetor at a temple to pray. This is only done by Chinese people. At the temple we do alot of praying (1000 prays) for all of the Buddas that lived (1000 Buddas). After all the prayers are done each family gives the little kids money for good luck. My mom told me about this stuff and I get alot of cash. This is important because we believe that the Buddas will give us good luck for praying. This is a fun tradition.
