Wishes from the Chinese Wishing Tree

Now that the dust has settled a little after taking down the wonderful Lanwei photographic show, we’ve had time to go through the 80 or so wishes that were left attached to the Chinese Wishing Tree in St Andrews Museum’s activity room.  You might be surprised to know that only a small handful of these had anything to do with wishes for wealth – the vast majority were wishes of good health, happiness and love for other people – aw!  Maybe we don’t live in such a self-centred world after all.  Read on below to share them…
