There are seven official holidays in China. Five of these are three-day holidays. There are two week-long national holidays in China: Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, in January or February, and National Day holiday, which is the first week of October.


A unique feature of Chinese holidays is that weekends, which are usually days off for office workers, are worked if there is a public holiday that week. For example if Monday to Wednesday was a public holiday then the weekend before would be worked, so the statutory holiday is effectively only one day.


Only Hong Kong and Macau have public holidays for Christmas.
