Celebrate the National Holiday with Chinese Flags
It is Guo Qing Jie!
Once again, the week-long October National Holiday is upon us, and I have failed to plan any vacation. But CCTV has done a great job of taking me on a virtual trip to Beijing, to see the massive 60th-anniversary celebrations being held there.
I sit by the TV on the edge of my seat, waving my mini China flag.
Those kids look just like I feel!
Where are all these flags coming from?
This Chinese Ayi is great. She is holding up a flag that she has just made – you can see her workbench in front of her. And she is just super happy. I feel like we could hang out, me and her.
And of course, I have my commemorative 60th anniversary shoes on. (They were only 60rmb and come in sizes all the way up to 45.)
Big flags are best
If you are considering buying a flag, my recommendation for you is to go big.
You can get a 1号, which is 2 meters by 3 meters for about 200rmb. That will cover an entire wall and will make a formidable impression. Aim your ceiling lights at it, and give the room a warm red glow.
Big flags make a great room decoration, and a great gift. Buy a few now, and pack them away to give to your friends next time you go back home. They will like it better than a wall scroll.
