The National Day of the People’s Republic of China and the Mid-Autumn Festival 2017

This week in China, Chinese people are enjoying a special week long holiday for the National Day on 1st October and the Mid-Autumn Festival on 4th October. Upper IV children have been learning about these two important dates.

This year is the 68th birthday of modern day China. Important public squares and streets of Beijing have been decorated with flowers. National flags are raised on many buildings. Small flags are also being distributed to the general public on this important day.

The children also watched a short clip about the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival; a special occasion for family reunions. It is often celebrated by admiring the Mid-Autumn full moon, sharing mooncakes (which symbolise unity) and displaying colourful lanterns. Upper IV children particularly enjoyed watching Chinese children carrying a variety of delightful lanterns for the lanterns parade.

 

The national flag of China is also known as the ‘Five Stars Red Flag’.
