Two major holidays are coming soon in China: the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday and China’s National Day holiday. The first week of October is always the National Day week-long holiday but the Mid-Autumn Festival’s date changes every year. This year, the date of the Mid-Autumn Festival has resulted in a very complicated holiday schedule for China’s workers and they have created some interesting ways to remind them of which days they have off and which days they must work.

From NetEase & Daqi:

Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holiday schedule is complicated, “personality/attitude calendars” become popular online

Summary: The holiday period hailed as history’s most fragmented and frustrating/flip-flopping  is upon us, and in addition to mnemonic rhymes, songs, and other [ways to remember the holiday-workday schedule], workers have created yet another thing —- “personality/attitude calendars” [basically “silly” or “funny” calendars]. Amongst them, the “Plants vs. Zombies” or “Inception” versions have been the most popular.

网易浙江宁波网友:

I hear that our country even has a holiday committee/office, what else do they do other than arranging holidays?

网易辽宁丹东网友:

I don’t know what the country [government] is thinking. I don’t agree with how the holidays arranged like this. I also don’t agree with holidays randomly/carelessly arranged. When the time comes, rest when you should rest, go to work when you should go to work. [With a day off placed here and a work day placed there,] it is a mess.

网易辽宁大连网友:

Only SBs could set a holiday schedule like this.

网易火星网友:

For most workers, these holidays simply don’t exist.

网易湖北武汉网友:

This must’ve been made by those people in Beijing again. Those people just love to sort/arrange things, but why do something useless like this. I’ve never seen Beijing people do anything useful! Oh my heavenly kingdom [China/government]!

See Beijing people…chinaSMACK personals.

Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
