China culture is a big hodgepodge of the traditional and modern cultures. People can see commercial high-rise buildings everywhere in metropolitan cities and old houses and cottages in ancient alleys not far away from these skyscrapers. In Chinese minds, especially the elderly and the middle-aged people, the old ideas are still rooted deeply. The younger generation is filled with strong passion in pursuing the new, or to a greater extent, westernized lifestyle and having modernized ideas in love and family relations. However, the Chinese youths' creative power is very strong. They are very outstanding in many fields. The belief that has been followed by the Chinese people traditionally is the Confucius' philosophy, which is to urge people to value importance of family, practice self-restrain and emphasis on hard work. The worship in Confucius had been declined since the beginning of the 20th Century, because the tumultuous time that had made many young people to think twice about their traditional beliefs. At the same time, the Western ideas were coming, which were brand-new things for the Chinese people. The Western scientific achievement and the change of thinking among the younger generations have greatly transformed the ideas in Chinese people's minds, and their behavior as well. However, as the development of China, the traditional beliefs and values are coming back in a silent way these days; people are getting bored with the chaotic modern society and the wasteful lifestyle. More and more people are interested in traditional Chinese culture again.
