Birthday celebration held for giant panda cubs
CHENGDU, China (KABC) -- A celebration for 14 giant panda cubs was held in China over the weekend in honor of the cubs' first 100 days of life.
In Chinese tradition, babies and their families celebrate 100 days after birth to wish the baby a long and happy life. The 100 days have made a difference - some of the cubs are now more than 20 times their birth weight.
Many of the world's zoo pandas come from the same research center where the 14 cubs are housed, including those at the National Zoo in Washington.
