Official Chinese Holidays

New Year"s Day (January 1)

  Not as much celebrated as it is in other parts of the world because it is overshadowed by the upcoming Chinese New Year somewhere a month away. However, employees will enjoy a paid day-off. And there will be parties everywhere, in parks, dancing halls and universities where students will leave for the winter vacation.

  International Women"s Day (March 8)

  Interestingly, women employees will get a whole or an half paid day-off on the day while the men are at the mercy of their employers.

  Tree-Planting Day (March 12)

  Highly promoted since the late 70"s by the reformist government and yet to become established. It marks the begining of a greening campaign all over the country during the month each year.

  International Labor Day (May 1)

  No less celebrated than the New Year"s Day. Employees will enjoy a paid day-off. Celebration parties in parks took the place of parades today.

  Youth Day (May 4)

  A day in memory of the first mass student movement in 1919, a movement touched off by the then Chinese government that gave in to the Japanese government"s attempt to colonize Shandong Province. It is also an anti-Confucius movement as well as one that promoted the western scientific and democratic ideas. Government organized youth ralleys everywhere in the country today characterizes the celebration of this day.
