2020 China Official Holiday Calendar
« on: November 26, 2020, 11:39:20 PM »
The new painful list of weird days off for 2020 is out:

New Year's Day
Friday, Jan 1 to Sunday, Jan 3
Only China can give you Friday off and call it a 3-day "holiday."

Chinese New Year/Spring Festival
Thursday, Feb 11 to Wednesday Feb 17
Makeup work days: Sunday Feb 7 and Saturday Feb 20

Tomb-Sweeping Festival
Saturday, April 3 to Monday, April 5
In official Doublespeak this is another "three day holiday" when in reality it's one day off (Monday). But hey, who are we to complain: at least there's no weekend makeup day.

May Day
Saturday, May 1 to Wednesday, May 5
Makeup work days: Sunday April 25 and Saturday May 8
A five-day break! But wait, don't relax as you will be forced to work a six-day week before and a Saturday after for good measure to earn your week off.

Dragon Boat Festival
Saturday June 12 to Monday June 14
Another Monday off tarted up to be a "three day holiday."

Mid-Autumn Festival
Sunday Sep 19 through Tuesday, Sep 21
Makeup work day: Saturday Sep 18

National Day
Friday Oct 1 through Thursday Oct 7
Makeup work days: Sunday Sep 26 and Saturday Oct 9
alors régressons fatalement, eternellement. Des débutants, avec la peur comme exutoire à l'ignorance et Alzheimer en prof d'histoire de nos enfances!
