Japan’s Baby Crying contest
Naki Sumo, or the Baby Crying Festival is a contest in Japan where sumo wrestlers hold a baby to see whose infant will cry first. The baby to cry loudest and longest wins the contest. A Japanese proverb says that 'crying babies grow fast'. So they believe that the louder an infant wails, the more gods have blessed it. The competition is thus intended to generate good health for the babies.
