About Victory Day
The complete title of the Victory Day holiday is known as “Chinese People’s Anti-Japanese War and the World Anti-Fascist War Victory Commemoration Day”, which is exactly how the World War Two is called in China.
On September 2, 1945, Japan put its signature for its formal surrender, with China deciding to commemorate the day, a day post the date.
There is a huge parade on the day usually every time of this year, with the Military March being at the centre of it.
Armed Forces Day is celebrated in the People's Republic of China on 3 September, on the same day as Victory over Japan Day.
