Tomorrow is China’s National Day. Not to be confused with Taiwan’s Double Ten (which is a whopper of an anniversary this year), October 1, 1949 was the day Mao and Friends founded the People’s Republic of China at Tiananmen.
But now 62 years later, Mao has been relegated to a bizarre cult status, although this slogan–destroying the old world, building a new world–has never been more true.
The country still celebrates in a Communist kitschy way, mais oui. Here’s a floral design celebrating China.
People in China will get a week’s holiday for National Day. I can’t see that continuing indefinitely.
