China’s Lunchtime Nap Culture

Taking a short nap after lunch is a distinctive Chinese way of living, which is believed to generate positive health benefits.

Chinese kids are trained to take a nap at school. After initial resistance, they eventually have developed a life-long noon nap habit.

People in china no go sleep at night? I like “sleep study” hahaha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

They were trained to take a nap after lunch for health reasons since they were babies, so it becomes a habit.

But aren’t they responsible to work long hours?

All Things Chinese
I think they do with a relatively long lunch break.

Whitewash ducks besiege the herder when he dozes off.

The herder: Don’t be so smug! I’ll let you show your true colours when the time is right.

Don’t worry we form a circle and keep you safe from ?? Ghost! Hahahaha…

All Things Chinese
Actually, in Chinese mythology, ducks are one of the aminals most likely to be possessed by ghosts, so if you see ducks wandering on the street in the deep night, particularly during the ghost month, run as fast as you can.

Eric
Thanks for the advice, there is a duck pond near my home, oh I’m afeared now – in my best hillbilly accent – πŸ˜€πŸ˜

When I cross the bridge over the pond I will watch out. Hehehe but wait I don’t go in the deep of night hahaha.

All Things Chinese
Even when you don’t go there in the deep of night, you may still hear the sound of duck yodelling during the dead hours.

Allegedly, it could be the calling from ghosts. Don’t peep out from the window or you may see something you don’t want to see… heheeee 😱πŸ€ͺ 🀣

Don’t take this personal but here in the US we have plenty of Canadian geese that seem possessed…

Eric
Yes, your right Canadian geese are indeed possed, they can get quite nasty. Last summer a gaggle were sitting around and a couple were blocking the road, as I honk my horn the rest started to come around like a gang of thugs. With a look like “mess with one, you mess with us all” lol. Nah the dead don’t scare me, it’s the living that does, especially Canada geese. πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

All Things Chinese
Lucky, they haven’t attempted to block airports or train stations so far. πŸ€ͺ

Am I afraid of chaos in the world? Nope, nothing can stop me from taking a nap.

A Chinese boy doesn’t want to miss out on his regular non-nap even when his home is flooded.
