What Is Chinese National Day Festival?

什么是中国国庆节?

In the term “国庆“, the Chinese word for “National Day“, the first Chinese character “ (guó)” stands for the country, while the second “ (qìng)” means to celebrate the joyful and happy festivities.

在中文“国庆”一词中,“国”指国家,“庆”指的庆祝喜庆之事。

Since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, the October 1st (Beijing time) of each year has been designated as China’s “National Day Festival”, which means the national anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. It is also considered the “birthday” of the motherland by the Chinese.

自 1949 年中华人民共和国成立以后,每年的 10 月 1 日(北京时间)这一天都定作中国的“国庆日”,即庆祝中华人民共和国建立的纪念日,也是中国人眼中祖国的“生日”。

In the Chinese language, the China national day is also called “国庆节” (Chinese National Day Festival), or “十一国庆节” (National day Festival of October 1), or “十一” (Oct. 1st) for short, which indicates the day on October 1st.

在中文里,中国国庆日这一天,也被称为“国庆节”,或“十一国庆节”,简称“十一”,意味着十月一日这一天。

Chinese National Day Holidays Within Calendar

中国国庆节假期


Chinese National Day Holidays are not specifying the first day of October only, but usually including seven-day-continuous public holidays starting from October 1st to October 7th.

国庆节假期并非专指十月一日这一天,而是通常包含了从十月一日起至十月七日结束的、长达连续一周时间的公众假期。

Comparing with some Chinese long weekend holidays, the Chinese National Day Holidays usually last for at least 7 days long, which is currently the second-longest legal public holidays besides the Spring Festival in China.

相较于中国小长假来说,中国的国庆节假期往往持续至少 7 天的时间,这是目前除了中国春节以外唯一一个全国放假时间最长的假期。

And in some special year, when China’s Mid-Autumn Festival meets the Chinese National Day, the celebration for both traditional festivals will be combined together. As a result, one more day will be added to the Chinese National Day Holiday and to prolong the public vacation.

若遇上特殊年份,中秋节日期刚巧与国庆节重合,则双节合并后,假期会再延长 1 天。

For example, the Chinese National Day Festival for 2020 allows people to enjoy a total of 8 days until October 8 as the end. Among holidays of that year, the first day of October in 2020 is not only the 2020’s Chinese National Day Festival but also the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival of the year.

比如, 2020 年中国国庆假期共放假 8 天,直至 10 月 8 日结束,其中, 2020 年 10 月 1 日既是国庆节,又是这一年的中秋节。

Furthermore, the Chinese National Day Holidays is also the best time period for people to go out for traveling, enjoying vacations, go shopping, and for other consumptions.

另外,中国的国庆节假期还是人们选择外出旅游、度假和消费的最佳时间段。

That’s the reason that the Chinese National Day Holidays are also called “十一长假” (National Day Long Holidays), or “十一黄金周” (Golden Week Holidays) in China.

因此,中国国庆节假期,又被人们称作“十一长假”,或“十一黄金周”。
