  • Dragon Boat Festival: China Closed

Every year, citizens of Mainland China and Hong Kong enjoy a couple of days off and celebrate their favorite Festivals.

The promo gift industry is a seasonal business and industry. Therefore, it is crucial to take note these dates to ensure that you can plan in advance and have a smooth manufacturing process without any hiccups.

* Coronavirus means that CNY shut down till approx 15-20th Feb, 2020 for many factories.

Chinese holidays 2020

Early in the outbreak, China imposed tough travel restrictions and factory suspensions due to the corona virus situation in China. In an effort to control the virus, more than half of China extended the lunar new year holiday by at least a week. As a result, many factories have ceased operations for most of the first half of 2020.

Factory workers are returning to their jobs and factory lights have been turned on again. These first steps are positive changes towards a return to economic growth.

Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, falling on 1st October this year.

This day is also known as the Chinese Moon Festival, at this time of year the moon is believed to be at its fullest and brightest. In Chinese culture, the full moon signifies reunion, so Chinese families reunite and enjoy reunion dinners together during this national holiday.

This yearly tradition means that production will completely cease during this holiday.

National Day Holiday

On October 1st 1949 Chairman Mao Zedong proclaimed the founding of the People’s Republic of China from atop Beijing’s Gate of Heavenly Peace (Tian’anmen Gate). This year marks the 71st anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

This year this holiday falls on 1st October to 7th October. During this week, factories and operations will close, returning on 8th October.
