Do you know that the new holiday policy is going to carry out in China?In the new policy,the 7 days holiday of labor day will be cut down to one day,and the traditional festival like Tomb-sweeping Day ,dragon boat festival and the mid-autumn day will become the legal festivals and all of them are just one day.

i hear about that just one minute ago. i think it is good for everyone. the goverment officior said it is nice and friends for the economics and entironment. i agree with him. you know a long holiday bring so many turists that the entironment can not suffer. a short holiday and more holiday is better than one long holiday. the most important is we can have the traditional holidays. a traditional holidays is much important to me. especially the middle-autumn days and the Qingming days. as it is a day for the whole family to do something together and hold a memorial ceremony for our forefathers. so i like the change. thank you for this discussions.

hi, thank you very much, i dont know that policy yet as i care little about that. is your information true? or it is just a suggestion? in fact, i dont care too much about the holiday, as i am a teacher, i have enough free time. whether the labor day holiday is 7 days or just 1 day has litter effect to my life. however, it is really a big change. you know when i was a college student, i looked forward to holiday.

Yeah,That is ture,and this new policy will be carried out from next year.It means that I will lose a long holiday from next year,so a long trip during the labor days is impossible for me,that is a pity.But I think the traditional festivals becoming the legal holidays means a lot for our chinese.I wish would have holidays for the traditonal festivals,and at the same time, keep the 7 days' labor festival,but that is luxurious,right?So I really wish I was a teacher!Thank you for sharing!
