China Public Holidays Announced

Quite useful - particularly as I tend to sometimes forget myself when these days are - from CNReviews:

New Year - Jan 1-2
Chinese New Year - Jan 25-30
Qingming Holiday - Apr 4-6
Labor’s Day - May 1
Duanwu Holiday - May 28-29
National Day - Oct 1-8
Chinese New Year's is January 26th and it's the Year of the Ox. According to CNReviews: "We have a special new year greeting mixing English with Chinese: Happy Niu (牛) Year this time as Ox (牛) is pronounced the same as “New” in Chinese." Yes, very punny.
