To Waylim: Festival & Holiday

  • Hi Way,

    Chinese have an important festival on every season:-

    Spring - Chinese New Year

    Summer - DuanWu Festival

    Autumn - Mid Autumn Festival

    Winter - DongZhi Festival

    Some others important festival :

    - QingMing Festival

    - Hungry Ghost Festival

    - Qixi Festival

    All above traditional festivals are related with and origin from Chinese agricultural society at old time.

    In Malaysia, no public holiday allow for Mid Autumn Festival and some others festivals, only Chinese New Year claimed as a public holiday, since our governmnet said our country already have too many holidays.

    Or in other words, no public holiday allow base on cultures & believings' celebrations, however public holidays is approved for celebrations related with religions.

    Regards,
    Ally
