China’s many festivals and holidays are one of the most fun and fascinating aspects of Chinese life!
China is a geographically and culturally diverse country which means that many different places within China and ethnic minority groups celebrate festivals that they would consider to be their main holiday but that may not be widely celebrated elsewhere in China. But here are the main Festivals…
