Learn Chinese Through News: National Day 国庆节


National Day (National celebration day), officially the National Day of the People's Republic of China, is a public holiday in China celebrated annually on 1 October as the national day of the People's Republic of China, commemorating the formal proclamation of the establishment of the People's Republic of China on 1 October 1949. The Chinese Communist Party victory in the Chinese Civil War really resulted in the Kuomintang "retreat" to Taiwan and the Chinese Communist Revolution whereby the People's Republic of China "replaced" the Republic of China.

Although it is really observed on 1 October, another six days are added to the official holiday, normally in lieu of the two weekend breaks around 1 October, making it a de facto public holiday comprising seven consecutive days also known as Golden Week with certain specifics regulated by the State Council. Festivities and concerts are usually held nationwide on this day, with a grand military parade and mass pageant event held on select years.


国庆节(National celebration day),正式为中华人民共和国国庆日,是中国的公共假日,每年 10 月 1 日为中华人民共和国国庆日,纪念中华人民共和国正式宣布成立中华人民共和国,1949 年 10 月 1 日。中国共产党在中国内战中的胜利确实导致了国民党"撤退"到台湾和中国共产党革命,中华人民共和国"取代"了中华民国。

虽然真正在 10 月 1 日庆祝,但官方假期又增加了六天,通常代替 10 月 1 日左右的两个周末假期,使其成为事实上的公共假期,包括连续七天,也称为黄金周,具有某些特定的细节由国务院规定。这一天通常在全国举行庆祝活动和音乐会,并在特定年份举行盛大的阅兵式和群众选美活动。
