Holiday: 3 for 1, 7 for 4

Sounds like Disney tickets but it is the holiday schedule over the next few weeks. Mid Autumn Festival is this week and we get 1 day off. However, the Chinese government, moves the weekend days (I worked Sunday and will Saturday) so we get 3 days off instead of 1. Oct 1 starts the National Holiday, and we are given 3 days off, but then again the weekends are moved around so we will have a total of 7 days off in a row. This happens a few times throughout the year… the government puts out a calendar (it is not out yet for 2011) however I have been told it is known to change what days you get off, despite the published calendar.  It is not like Europe here in regards to time off but not too bad…
