Third Day of Third Moon on Lunar Calendar, Our Own Holiday

Today is April 7, but it is also the third day of the third moon on lunar calendar, a ceremonious holiday for Guangxi people.

Before I write this post, I was surprised to read an article of the same subject published on the front page of today’s China Daily.

It is about the Buyi ethnic group living in Guizhou Province, a much less populous people than the Zhuang people living in Guangxi, where a five-day-long holiday has been granted by the government to all residents. Zhuang people is second only to Han people in number in China. So our dear readers can understand who is the real owner of this traditional ethnic-themed festival.

We eat sticky rice on such a big-event day in memory of our forefathers. The food is prepared and presented in five colors, which is the most colorful food in China in my opinion.

We sing songs on this day too. As is known to all, Guangxi is home to folk songs and the Nanning International Folk Song Festival has long been a brand gala for many music lovers and culture fans. In 1960s a famous movie “Sister Liusanjie” was so popular that even up to now you can find its trace in Guilin, a very nice city of Guangxi with the most beautiful landscape under the sun.
