Confucius's Birthday

This is a time to commemorate the birth of the teacher TSLA Men's 11 Inches Swim Trunks, Quick Dry Beach Board Shorts,, perhaps the most influential man in China's history. In Qufu, Shandong Province, China, the birthplace of Confucius, there is a two-week-long Confucian Culture Festival.

The festival opens with a ceremony accompanied by ancient music and dance and includes exhibitions and lectures on the life and teachings of Confucius. More... Discuss
