Q: Why do so many international events in China happen in March?

Sorry in advance, this question is mostly related to bigger cities.

 

Anyway, in Beijing, March sees the Capital M literary festival, the bookworm festival, the Restaurant Week and Jue Festival. I don't get it. There's so much going on during these weeks that I can't really make it to as many events as I'd like to. Why do these organizers all schedule their events at the same time each year? Wouldn't it make a crap load more sense to space these events out a bit?

I believe it has something to do with the weather....oh yeah wait the weather is horrible all year round. Besides that it could be that March is some type of special month of the year and that's the reason why there are so many festivals/events going on at that time.

Maybe because it is the first 'whole' month of the year when things are back to business after the Lunar New Year holiday.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
