When Ms. Zhao heard so many superstitious words in the mouth of the daughter of the second year of a key middle school, I can’t help but stunned: Why is the child so superstitious?
Last weekend, Ms. Zhao took her daughter to the mall to buy winter clothes. When she walked to a special counter to choose, her daughter took her own hand and walked away.
Originally thinking that her daughter was picky about the grade of clothes, she said that the brand’s logo was an X-shape, like the “fork” on the test paper.
At another counter, her daughter picked up a pair of sports shoes and a pair of sports cotton pants, and told her mother that the sign of this brand was like a “hook”, which would be very auspicious when wearing the exam.
The daughter also said that many students in the class now have this habit.

Every time the mid-term final exam, a girl in the dormitory always brings a large stack of constellation divination books from home. Everyone also sendsThey are circulated and read, and they are convinced by the contents of “lucky fortune”, “lucky day”, “lucky number”, “lucky color”, and complicated qi prompting methods.
After getting up on the day of the test, the students also popularly placed pen holders and other stationery according to the auspicious directions mentioned in their astrological books and prayed.

A middle school teacher said that the circulation rate of constellation books on campus is unmatched by any extra-curricular books. Middle school students are eager to buy themselves, and some even give it to each other as a fashionable birthday gift.
