Default 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.
