Yes, I was invited to a reception for all of the foreigners in the city where I lived by the Powers-that-Be.  It was a lovely, lovely reception, with a very large-and-well-done picture of the persons whose day was being commemorated surrounded by a sea of red poinsettias.  There was a cocktail reception followed by a sit-down dinner.  I would say that of all of the foreigners invited, probably close to 90% came, often with spouses in tow.  A traditional Chinese orchestra played revolutionary songs on traditional Chinese instruments.  The speeches and the baiju flowed. The dinner was about 8 different courses served by waiters and waitresses.

 

A grand event.

Lessee... What happened 120 years ago? Oh yeah...

Thomas Edison filmed the first movie close-up - of a sneeze - in his movie studio (the world's first) in New Jersey.

Celebrated that, But in February. Still count? crying

I did not see any commemoration (I live extreme suburbia of 1st tier) and I bet 90% of the populace would give one a blank look if queried about the significance of today's date.  Just like asking my fellow countrymen to commemorate the birth-date of Gen. Washington.  These things just do not translate well among the general populace, and why should they?  Did Uncle M really help things?  Most people I have spoken with seem in agreement that he did not. Funny that he is seemingly as revered as he is.  I suppose it is just a case of propping up an 'icon' and not looking into the reality behind said icon.

The town of Xiangtan is to spend 15 billion RMB on stuff in celebration of the great helmsman 120th anniversary. So much for Xi Jinpings policy of spending public funds with caution. Frugality my ass.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
