The public Chinese New Year holiday 2021 is February 12th through to February 26th. As this is a national holiday it affects all production in China. Furthermore, as there is still much uncertainty with the global coronavirus pandemic, and from our experience working through 2020 Chinese New Year, we are preparing action plans together with our factories to find different ways of working around disruptions.
All our efforts are always focused on your production, and our Factory Management team will be manned during the entire Chinese New Year. But despite all the precautions we are taking, it could be good to think ahead and plan for the holiday to avoid disruption in your production. We have made a list of a number of proactive measures to think about.
Why is this holiday a special one?
This holiday is the most important traditional holiday in China. It is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally ran from Chinese New Year’s Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. It is also the occasion when many Chinese travel across the country to spend the holiday with their families. The Chinese New Year has been called the largest annual human migration in the world.

People born in the year of the Ox are said to be honest and earnest. They are low key and never look for praise or to be the center of attention. This often hides their talent, but they’ll gain recognition through their hard work.
