Offline cultural events nationwide will be documented and shared on short-video and livestreaming platforms, showcasing local festival celebrations and helping those unable to reunite with their families during the holidays to overcome homesickness, said ministry official Zhong Jianbo at a press conference.

The videos will be posted and shared on major social media such as video-sharing platform Douyin, Zhong said, adding that all cultural activities will be organized in accordance with COVID-19 containment measures.

The Spring Festival, or the Chinese Lunar New Year, falls on Feb. 12 this year.
