The article is a review of traditional Chinese customs, enriched with specific Chinese features, that are still alive in Taiwan. It provides a synthetic description of customs pertaining to the family, granting first and last names, nativity, initiation, weddings and funerals, and celebration of the most important traditional holidays. These phenomena were broadly described and classified by a Taiwanese ethnologist, Professor Juan Ch'ang-rue, whose work devoted to the question of traditional customs, as well as an earlier one, dealing with Taiwanese traditional folk religions, has already been translated from the Chinese into Polish by the author of this article. In the conclusion, the authori postulates to examine the current level of preservation of these behaviours and their evolution in the face of modernization and Western influences.
