The elderly Chinese celebrate the festival by climbing mountains, drinking chrysanthemum wine and sweeping the tombs of their ancestors. This is the first year that China will celebrate the festival as the Elders’ Day. It comes after China implemented the law to protect the interest of the elderly in July, and stipulated the day also as the Elders Day.
According to official statistics, China’s ageing population has entered a period of rapid growth.
