For the listing compiled by the Washington Post, […]

When a “Five Days Off” is really one day off

20 December, 2007 (22:00) | China, Details | No comments

China is a bit of a weird place when it comes to national vacations/days off…
Besides me totally not expecting they celebrate the solar calendar new year (January 1st) - and scheduling several days of exams during this time (including Christmas day). It really threw me off that they take 5 days off for this […]
