Chinese people have experienced the messiest holidays since September 16. They worked for 3 days, rested for 3 days (middle autumn holiday + weekends), then worked for 6 days and rested for 1 one day (weekend), again worked for 2 days and rested for 7 days (national day holidays) and then worked for 5 days and rested for 1 day.

Thanks to the messiest holidays, many people’s body clocks have been totally disturbed. Some of them suffered from the headache when they returned to work. A hospital claims that many white collars went to see the doctor after the National Day Holidays.

Perhaps, China National Holiday Office has realized their mistake. A questionnaire has been issued on some famous websites (such as Xinhuanet, QQ and Sina) to ask the public’s opinions on Chinese holidays. Around 65 percent of the participants are dissatisfied with the current holidays.

In the past, there were two golden weeks (May Day and National Day holidays). In 2007, Tomb-sweeping Holiday, Dragon Boat Festival and Middle Autumn Holiday were added. However, May Day Holidays were shortened to three days. Strictly speaking, seven-day golden week is composed of three legal holidays and four weekend days. The national holiday office asks whether the seven-day long national day holidays should be continued. 47% of the participants say YES while another 47% of them say NO.
