The PRC State Council has announced that a day off in lieu of this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival will be postponed. With the festival falling on Sunday September 27, standard practice would be to declare Monday 28 as a public holiday. However, the closely following October 1 to 7 PRC National Day holiday period requires the entire October 10-11 weekend to be worked to “make up” for the time off, which would result in a nine-day work streak. Therefore the Monday 28 “in-lieu-of” holiday will effectively be observed on October 11 instead. One netizen said China would be forever juggling holidays around.
