Corban Festival, an annual major traditional Islamic festival, will be celebrated on November 17, 2010. To mark this joyful event, the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region Post Company has issued 12,000 copies of religious greeting cards, the first of its kind in China.
Featuring Arabic calligraphy and buildings of Islamic style, these cards displayed the unique lifestyle and customs of the Hui ethnic group in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
The Ningxia Ethnic Affairs Commission plans to send the cards to Muslims in Ningxia and other parts of China before the festival.
