So this is January 27th, 2014, and Chian is getting ready for the New Year.
A family vacation Chinese people wouldn’t miss for anything in the world
Forget about legislation and regulations, paid leaves, because very few Chinese firms work five days a week – most work six days a week.
Awright, the Sci Team only works 5.5 days a week (including Saturday mornings) but on the market it’s seven days a week, therefore this time of the year is actually the only real vacation they can have and be with their families.
Party favors and champagne are replaced by firecrackers and fireworks that will rock the casbah
The Chinese New Year never happens on the same day because of a whimsical Moon, so this year it going to happen on January 31st, that is one month after the rest of the world. (Time zones have nothing to do with this! 😀 )
This night will offer everyone the possibility to see his or her loved ones again, make merry and have a few firecrackers go off. They will be heard everywhere as if it was an assault on Baghdad.

Work you will not be able to do because no one will find you.
I won’t go into detail ; basically, office workers leave, managers leave, buildings close, truckers close. Even our Scotch tape and manilla paper closes.
Chinese bloggers, having nothing more to say, will also take their leave but the JTGeek will stay at the helm of the imperial flagship, still commanding an alternative view of China.
Except the JTGeek ^^
If I treat myself with a vacation from January 29th till February 2nd, be sure I’ll be back in better shape than ever and I’ll make up my delay on tests with one or two videos (from HK for example).
Or blathering bloggers will stay and you’ll have news to read for the whole week.
