The first Friday of the Olympics also doubles as basically a half-day of school, as all the competition and training comes to a stop earlier in the day than usual. That’s so as many athletes as possible can attend the Opening Ceremonies, which will take place at the Bird’s Nest in Beijing.

The Bird’s Nest was also the host for the 2008 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies, considered to be the most incredible spectacles ever broadcast to the world. If you’ve never seen it or forgotten, watch at least the first 15 minutes here.

The Chinese Communist Party considered this their commercial to the world, and while it remains controversial, it was something that wouldn’t ever be forgotten. What they choose to do as a follow-up in the middle of a global pandemic, we’ll just have to wait and watch.
