Happy Confucius Day

Yesterda is jointly celebrated as the birthday of Confucius as well as Teacher's Day in Taiwan. President Ma Ying-jeou appeared this year as an "honored guest" in the ceremony in Tainan, marking the first time in the 400-year history of the Confucius Temple there that the nation's president has taken part in this long-held tradition.

Hsu Keng-hsiu pointed out that the ceremony honoring Confucius was instituted by Zheng Jing, the son of Zheng Cheng-gong (Koxinga) and that nothing is known about the rite as it was originally held. For 400 years it has remained basically unchanged, however, carried out in accordance with ancient ceremonies in the Main Hall and Secondary Hall, with six ranks of young scholars dressed in ceremonial robes dating from the Qing Dynasty.




Today we should honor Confucius as well as our very own Confucius here at Airliners.net.  Smile

Do not taunt. Do not shake. Do not pander. Add coffee. Subject should be slightly human within an hour.

I've been to Bangkok 4 times and had that issue every time at the turnstiles.
I hate it when that happens. Embarrassment
