Remembrance Day China
For those who want to get a sense of what it is like living in modern-day China, from 9 am loud sirens wailed right around the city I live in. Imagine air raid sirens.
This is the day that the Chinese remember the invasion of north-east China by the Japanese.
If you Google '18 September China' you will find some explanations in English.

Actually, the invasion of north-east China started on September 19th not September 18th.
Ok, I remember reading that. But thanks anyway for clarifying kimiik The date for remembrance 九一八is set by the 九一八事变; I generalised in my opening comment, running the 'incident' and the invasion together.
