Ancient china, Chinese traditions and culture 
Culture is often intrinsically tied to religion, although sometimes it is not. However, we cannot deny that the two do have connections. China does not have a national religion; however, there are four main religions practiced in China. They are:
  •     Buddhism
  •     Taoism
  •     Chinese folk religion
  •     Confucianism

Many people do not adhere solely to only one religious practice. Instead, they blend a few of them to find the beliefs with which they are comfortable. Buddhism is probably the most widespread religion that is practiced, although there are many ways to practice it. You could be a theistic or an atheistic Buddhist, or you might combine Chinese traditions and culture from the folk religion and worship gods and goddesses from those days.
