Hot on Weibo: 民政局很忙 201314 Marriage

I write in Chinese because I think the advanced readers might want to read in Chinese, and to know what's happening in China right NOW, what are people talking about on weibo TODAY. I'll put some notations if needed.

Weibo, aka Sina Weibo,  is a Chinese microblogging website. Akin to a hybrid of Twitter and Facebook, it is one of the most popular sites in China, in use by well over 30% of Internet users.   http://weibo.com   (Feel free to add me on weibo:  http://weibo.com/sofree )

昨天是2013年1月4日,各地民政局里都出现了排长队领结婚证的火爆场面。因为201314的中文谐音是“爱你一生一世”。有的民政局半夜十二点就开门“迎客”,有的小两口在民政局被挤散,还有一位大妈提前通宵为儿子排队!多地 1月4日都创造了领证人数新纪录。一切,都是为了能在这一天结婚!你被震住了吗?可是,你们有没有考虑过明年周年庆的日子……?

Hey Seraph!  This is a great post.  Thanks for giving the definition for 民政局; I couldn't quite figure that out while I was reading.  I'm looking forward to more of these posts!
