How many public holidays do you have in your country?
Well… there are a ton of public holidays in China. Of course, the longest one is the spring festival holiday, which lasts two weeks for a lot of people. Besides that, we also have holidays for Labor Day, mid-autumn day, National Day and so on. Actually, I think we have at least one holiday each month.
Which is the most popular holiday in China?
When it comes to the most popular holiday in China, it’s definitely the Spring Festival! We all love it because it’s the grandest festival of the year. Our families have complete reunions and have a blast doing a ton of interesting things, like playing mahjong and playing with firecrackers. Anyway, it’s a great bonding time for families in China.
Do you like busy days? Do you prefer being busy or beingfree?
I don’t like busy days. I get stressed pretty easily, so when things are hectic, I feel like I’m going to lose my mind. So I definitely prefer being free. It’s just so much nicer to kick back and relax. You can do whatever you want when you have a free day.
What’s your favorite way to kill time?
I think my favorite way to kill time is by hanging out with friends. You can do whatever; you can go shopping, you can watch a movie, or you can just sit around and shoot the breeze. There’s usually no pressure when you’re with your friends.
Which holiday is your favorite?
Honestly I love all the holidays. But if I have to pick one, I will choose Spring Festival. It’s not only because it’s the longest holiday when I can have a two-week break, but also because I enjoy celebrating it with my beloved family. Plus, as a younger person in my family, I could get some red envelopes from my elders during Spring Festival.
How do you usually spend your holidays?
I usually spend my holidays with my family. It’s not that exciting, but I really like the chance to catch up with them and see how they’re all doing. It helps strengthen the relationships between us and keeps us close. It’s also nice having some of my mother’s home-cooked food.
Do you think people need more public holidays?
Well, if you ask me, I think it would be great if we had more public holidays. You know, people could benefit from having more time off . It would give them the chance to kick back and relax, which could really help their mental health. But I don’t know if it’s more of a want than a need.
