The May 4th Youth Day originated from China’s anti-imperialist “May 4th Movement” in 1919. The May 4th patriotic movement was a complete patriotic movement against imperialism and feudalism and also the beginning of the Chinese new-democratic revolution. In 1939, the Youth League for the Northwest Youth in the Ningxia Border Region of Shaanxi, Gansu, and Gansu Province stipulated that May 4th be China Youth Day.
During the Youth Day, various commemorative activities are held in various parts of China. Young people must also concentrate on various social volunteering and social practice activities. There are also many places where adult ceremonies are held during the Youth Day.
