Congrats & Best Wishes–Both! — Dave’s Diary
Just when you think you’ve heard it all you hear this. Trade the cap for a veil, the robe for a gown and we’ll call it graduation Chinese style!Forget graduating in a dumpy cap and gown. Female Chinese students are opting to attend their graduation ceremonies dressed in wedding gowns.
Does that mean there will be cake?
Daily Mail reports that in China, graduations are seen as a less formal practice and more as a chance for students to say goodbye to each other. Liu Xiangping, a Chinese student from a University in China says, “The wedding dress makes things feel more meaningful.”
OK, if they say so. But they also say there’s more! Other unique outfit choices for graduates include dressing like a pirate, builder, and even wearing Qing dynasty attire. (Daily Mail)
