What Are China's Legal Holidays?


Usually, China has seven legal holidays in a year, or known as China's public holidays, linking with several major Chinese traditional festivals, including:


  • Yuandan Festival - 元旦 (yuán dàn) - you may know about it as New Year's Day, and that's what the word 元旦 means in Standard Chinese (Putonghua, aka. Standard Mandarin).
  • Chinese New Year Festival - 春节 (chūn jié) - it is well known as 中国新年 (zhōng guó xīn nián), or the Spring Festival worldwide, the latter of which is exactly the literal translation of 春节 in English.
  • Qingming Festival - 清明节 (qīng míng jié) - generally understood as the Tomb-Sweeping Day.
  • Labour Day - 劳动节 (láo dòng jié) - also well known as the May Day or the International Labors' Day worldwide.
  • Duanwu Festival - 端午节 (duān wǔ jié) - The name Duanwu exactly comes form the Chinese pinyin of 端午 (duān wǔ). It is also well known as the Dragon Boat Festival, which is the literal translation from the word 龙舟 (lóng zhōu) in English, the big eye-catching symbol during the festival period in China.
  • Mid-Autumn Festival - 中秋节 (zhōng qiū jié) - The popular English name Mid-Autumn is literally translated from this traditional festival's Chinese name 中秋 (zhōng qiū).
  • China National Day - 国庆节 (guó qìng jié) - also well known as China's National Day Festival.

Most of above traditional Chinese festivals and legal holidays are distributed in the first half of a year, except the March, and the rest usually fall in the cool autumn and winter, except the November.


Although these Chinese legal holidays are regularly observed in fixed months, the exact dates for festival celebrations will fluctuate year to year due to the unique Chinese lunisolar calendar.
