Can legality be taught or is it assimilated by the immediate environment? Is it a spontaneous human tendency, or is it enforced by public power? Theoretical questions are described through participation in Ramadan traditions and a stay in Qiandongnan. The main result is the idea that self control is given more by habits than anything else, including education and rule of law. Institutions and educationists try to change and influence habits, and do achieve some result, but habits cannot change in a day, because they are embodied first in the flesh then in the mind. Habituation to legality is a matter of surviving centuries and coercive surroundings.
