The origin of National Day
October 1, 1949 was the anniversary of the founding of New China. It should be noted here that in many people’s minds, the Founding Ceremony of the People’s Republic of China was held on October 1, 1949 at Tiananmen Square in Beijing, with the participation of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians. In fact, this impression in people’s minds is not accurate. Because, the ceremony held in Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1949 was a grand ceremony for the founding of the Central People's Government of the People's Republic of China, not a grand ceremony for the founding of the nation. In fact, the "founding" of the People's Republic of China, that is, the founding of the People's Republic of China, was announced one week before October 1 of that year. At that time, it was not called "the founding ceremony", but it was called "the founding ceremony". The time was September 21, 1949. On this day, Mao Zedong, director of the Preparatory Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, announced the birth of New China in his opening speech at the first session of the CPPCC.
So what happened to the National Day on October 1st? At the first meeting of the First National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Lu Xun’s wife Xu Guangping said: "Commissioner Ma Xulun cannot come on leave. He asked me to say that the founding of the People’s Republic of China deserves a National Day, so I hope that this Council will decide October 1st as National Day." Mao Zedong said, "We should make a proposal to the government, and it is up to the government to decide."
On October 2, 1949, the Central People's Government passed the "Resolution on the National Day of the People's Republic of China", stipulating that October 1 is the National Day each year, and this day is used as the day for proclaiming the founding of the People's Republic of China.
Since 1950, October 1st has been a grand celebration for people of all ethnic groups across the country.
National Day, that is, October 1st every year, this is a festival that every Chinese will never forget and should not forget. On October 1, 1949, New China was officially born. Since then, we have opened the door to a new world and ushered in a new and vast world. This topic will take everyone to review history, look forward to the future, and celebrate this great day together.
