Chinese national holiday

As we approach the U.S. national holiday on 4 July, here's a reminder of another national holiday.

October 1 is a public holiday in the People's Republic of China. The PRC was founded on October 1, 1949 with a ceremony at Tiananmen Square. It is celebrated with a variety of government-organized festivities, including fireworks and concerts. Public places, such as Tiananmen Square in Beijing, are decorated in a festive theme.

Fireworks displays are usually held in all cities, including Hong Kong, where a fireworks display to celebrate the National Day of the People's Republic of China has been held since 1997.
