The Japanese Sumo wrestlers hold babies facing each other & the priest makes the babies cry .The baby who criees first or louder is considered winner.The Japanese believe that crying babies grow faster .The baby who cries first or louder is more blessed by God with good health . Every year this baby crying contest is held in Japan & this year 84 babies participated.
