Local people are very sensitive to issues related to education. A person with a prestigious profession is respected by everyone. Teachers are all considered to be wise men. Local people tend to be very conservative. They are not big fans of innovations and keep honoring the customs of their ancestors. Even long-term influence of western culture could not break down the relationship of local people with their religion and culture. They have borrowed the best from the Europeans, at the same time retaining their spiritual values.
Public opinion is very important for the residents of the city. Even people from not rich families always organize posh celebrations, and wedding ceremonies here often look like royal events – getting admiration of others is very important for local people. Hong Kong people are very superstitious, because of the influence of old traditions and customs. They believe in destiny, numerological studies and think that evil spirits can be the cause of harm and unhappiness. You will certainly see religious attributes and charms in nearly each house. They are necessary to attract good luck. Many national amulets have spread to other countries. The "money" tree is, probably, the most striking example.
