Lucky Holidays Ahead

01_15_scene_Lucky Holidays AheadThe 2015 public holiday schedule was released on December 16, setting down the detailed arrangement of all 11 public holidays for the year’s National festivals and memorial holidays. Looking at the schedule, there seems to be much fewer annoyances in the way of weekends worked in compensation for a day off. Let’s go through them one by one:

New Year’s Day – January 1: Falling on Thursday, it started us off with a working Sunday on January 4. No surprise.

Spring Festival (CNY) – February 18 to 20: The biggest holiday of the year. The seven-day-long vacation will start on the CNY’s Eve, instead of CNY day as it did last year, probably due to the uproar it caused. The two working weekends fall on February 15 (Sunday) and 28 (Saturday).

Qing Ming Festival (Tomb-sweeping Festival) – April 5: Luckily falling on a Sunday means our ancestors gifted us a lovely three-day weekend.

International Labor Day – May 1: It’s a Friday and realizes another sweet three-day weekend.

Dragon Boat Festival – June 20: Good things happen again. This Saturday creates another three-day weekend.

Mid-Autumn Day – September 27: Falling on Sunday, this one makes a three-day weekend for the fourth time in the year. This must happen only once a century.

National Day – October 1 to 3: Not bad, the vacation is from October 1 to 7, only one working weekend follows, October 10 (Saturday).
