Chinese Holiday Calendar

Boasting rich cultural and political meaning, the Chinese festivals and holidays are an important part of both modern and traditional Chinese culture.

With this informational page we seek to increase awareness about these holidays and festivals and provide some guidelines on how you – with simple means - can celebrate and spread joy among your Chinese guests.

The Chinese holidays can be segmented into traditional festivals and modern holidays, introduced after 1949. The modern holidays like the National Day and May 1st follow the Gregorian calendar, while the traditional festivals like Spring Festival and Dragon Boat Festival follow the Chinese lunar calendar.
This means that the traditional festivals fall on differing dates from year to year.
