Just a reminder for anyone not keeping track – Chinese New Year (Spring Festival) will begin on Wednesday, February 6th. This means that we will work non-stop from January 28th until January 5th (no Sat/Sun off for Feb 2 & 3), but then will not return to work until Wednesday the 13th. So that’s actually a total of a 3 day holiday, because the weekend rest of the 2nd and 3rd gets moved to the Spring Festival vacation.
Not sure what I’ll do for the Spring Festival… Any ideas?
Here’s a handy reference chart for anyone that needs it 🙂
In case you prefer english, the dates in order are:
新年：new years 春节：spring festival 清明节：visit the graves of our elders (扫墓) 劳动节：labor day 端午节：dragon boat festival (eat zongzi) 中秋节：mid autum festival (eat moon pies) 国庆节：national day AKA independence day 妇女节: Women’s Day 青年节: Youth Day 儿童节: Children’s Day 建军纪念日: Military Memorial Day
