Chinese National Day

Bummer, I wasn't well enough to film any of the events.
But what interests me is how many, especially the media hype up the National Day.
After all when the Communists took power in 1949, Hong Kong was still a British colony and served no purpose in their acension to government.
A particular TV programme tonight featured top Hong Kong singers performing Chinese national songs, and that really disgusted my uncle!
I wonder if it's celebrated in places like Tibet or Taiwan..
