DOUBLE TEN HIP HIP HOORAY! :-)

Readers, join with me when I say a joyful “Happy Double Ten ( 雙十) to my Chinese brothers and sisters in Trinidad & Tobago and around the world”!

Double Ten is the national day of the Republic of China; it commemorates the start of the Wuchang Uprising of 10th October 1911.  This event eventually led to the collapse of the Qing dynasty.  Additionally, it is also known as National Celebration Day in Taiwan (Taipei), in other parts of the world where people of Chinese origin reside.

According to Taiwanese American the Wuchang Uprising October 10, 1911 marked the beginning of the military Wuchang Uprising (aka the start of the Xinhai Revolution), as revolutionaries were upset over government corruption, the encroachment of foreign countries into China, and resentment over Manchu rule over Han Chinese.

This day marked the collapse of the Qing Dynasty in China, thus ending thousands of years of imperial dynastic rule.  Double Ten’s History
