vividly and thoroughly. They can be divided into four major categories: Traditional Festivals are a reflection of the Chinese traditional
practices and morality of the people; Public Festivals are those designated as such by the Chinese government to commemorate some
special events; Ethnic Minority Festivals are unique to the Chinese minority ethnic groups; and the tourism festivals are associated with
renowned Chinese scenic spots.
