August 1 is the anniversary of the founding of the Chinese people's Liberation Army, so it is also called the August 1 Military day. The August 1 Nanchang Uprising in 1927 launched the first gun of armed resistance against the reactionaries of the Kuomintang, which announced the beginning of the independent leadership of the Communist Party of China in the revolutionary armed forces and the establishment of the revolutionary army. Therefore, August 1 is designated as the military day of the Chinese people's Liberation Army, so it should be counted from August 1, 1927, so the military day in 2018 is the 91st anniversary.
What are the customs of the August 1st Army Day
Custom 1: support the army
The custom of the August 1st military day is to support the army in various forms carried out by various departments and social organizations.
Every year on the army day, the army organizes grand commemorative activities to celebrate its own festivals. Governments at all levels will also organize grand civil military parties or sermons, and invite representatives of the old Red Army, retired military cadres, disabled revolutionary soldiers and martyrs to attend. At the same time, we should organize activities to support the army and give preferential treatment to its families, publicize the glorious tradition of the people's army, and check the implementation of the work of preferential treatment.
Custom 2: memorial ceremony for Heroes
On this day, the whole army will hold various activities to celebrate their own activities. Some hold literary and art performances in the army to show their talents; some visit the lonely elderly in the community to offer them a warmth of kinship; some visit the revolutionary martyrs' cemetery to visit their tombs or offer online sacrifices to commemorate the heroes who have offered precious lives for the revolution and the people.
In the tomb sweeping activities on the day of August 1, unlike the solemnity and solemnity of the Tomb Sweeping Day, they usually hold some commemorative activities in front of the tombstone, in order to commemorate their achievements and cherish the present happy life. The procedure of the memorial ceremony is similar to that of Tomb Sweeping on Qingming Festival. Generally, there will be cleaning and offering fruits and delicacies, or planting trees, wreaths of flowers, prayers, etc. later, some military troops will visit the families of the martyrs and listen to the teachings from the living. In today's technologically advanced society, they can also hold online memorial ceremonies through the Internet, which is also the inevitable trend of future tomb sweeping activities.
Custom 3: visiting old comrades
I visited retired veteran comrades and cadres in the army, and extended greetings and good wishes to them on holidays. I would like to express my gratitude to the old comrades of the army for their contributions during the revolutionary war and their long-term concern and support for the local economic and social development, and wish them a long and healthy life, a happy old age and a happy family.
Custom 4: offer love to poor families
In some remote areas or areas where family conditions are not very good, especially during festivals, we should visit the poor and ask for help, so as to really send the party's warmth to the hearts of the people.
Under the same blue sky, it's really a different life. Some of the environment is bad, and some of the children can't even guarantee their basic life. Let alone children in big cities have rich extracurricular and material life. Although the government has arranged children to go to school according to the national policy, some children still can't go to school because of the objective conditions. So I will send him some money to help the poor families and solve their practical problems.
