The pie chartprovides some interesting data regardingthe family expense of urban residents during Spring Festival in ourcountry. As is shown above, the family expense during the holiday is mainly used for gifts, accounting 40 percent of the whole expense.
Obviously, such statistics regarding family expenses reflects the lifestyles of the average urban family in China. To begin with,the most expense used for buyingpresentssuggests that Chinese people are morelikelyto enjoy a lifestyle of communication during holidays, which may add more flavor to their routine life. What’s more,it isinterestingto note that urban residents attach importance to giving others gifts,therebydevoting much of the income togifts for friends, relativesand familymembers. Inaddition, there is no denying in saying that the major factor responsible for the phenomenon is that urban people posses more moneyavailablefor gifts thanks to the growth of urban economy.
Takingabove-mentionedanalysisinto account, we can naturallyarrive atthe conclusion:as the societyfurtherdevelops, the trendmirroredby the table is bound to continue for a couple of years in the forthcomingfuture.
As wecan see, filial piety is prevailing all through the two pictures: in the firstframe, an amiable mother is supporting her little daughter while in the secondframe, her daughter, who has grown up, is supporting her aged mother instead。
What a happy family full of preciouslove! The implication conveyed in these two pictures is self-evident: we needto show our concern and respect to our parents. However, most of us fail to dothis job. First of all, as our lifestyle gallops along, we are less likely tohold enough awareness on our filial piety. As young men who deem the career asthe priority, they often choose to migrate with their jobs, work around theclock and rest with the work files, leaving parents in empty-nests. Besides,many people are used to substituting their care for parents with money orgifts. While it is beyond dispute that material support can improve ones’living standards, what those aged people need most is the mental satisfactionand love from their children such as a simple call, a short being back home。
It is easy to draw this conclusion that,to our parents, nothing can be better than the filial piety from children.Whenever possible, we should gather around the table for a “reunion dinner”with our parents; whether busy or not, we need to give our parents a call andtell them we are fine.
As is clearly reflected in the above pie chart, the purpose of students travelling abroad demonstrates obvious differences in one college of China. According to the data given, the purpose of enjoying the beautiful landscape takes a comparatively large share, accounting for 37%, while that of relieving pressure also takes away 20% of the whole proportion.
What triggers this phenomenon? It is not difficult to put forward several factors responsible for this phenomenon. To start with, with the rapid economic development of economy, people, including college students, are becoming increasingly wealthy, which enables them to afford the once-deemed- expensive oversea traveling. In order to enjoy the charming landscape all around the world, a large proportion of students choose to travel abroad. What’s more, along with the ever-accelerating improvement of economy and society is also the ever-increasing work and life pressure. Consequently, the purpose of relieving pressure ranks the second among all the purposes for folks to travel around the world.
In view of the arguments above, we can conclude that the current phenomenon is of no surprise. And therefore, it can be predicted that admiring the scenery and alleviating pressure will still be the main purpose for people to arrange a traveling to other countries.
