The most well recognized Chinese public holiday for people outside China is the Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival. But then again, there are many other Chinese holidays which all have their own interesting history.

Since these holidays affect production in China in various degrees, we always prepare action-plans together with our factories to find different ways of working around any disruptions.

Between 19th – 21st September is the Mid-Autumn festival and 1st – 7th October is the National day.
