Confucius's Birthday

This is a time to commemorate the birth of the teacher Brian Tooley Racing BTR LS1 LS2 LS6 LSX 4.8 5.3 6.0 6.2 GEN III, perhaps the most influential man in China's history.

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
