Chinese New Year, commonly called Lunar New Year, is China’s most important holiday. In 2011, the main celebrations for the year of the Rabbit it will start on February 3rd, until February 6th.

Please refer to our previous blogChina, Hong Kong and Singapore Public Holidays 2011 to view holiday calendar of the full year.

It is important to note that we will probably face delays in shipment and production in Q1 from China.  Chinese factories will close in staggered dates depending on the workload and location – generally factories shut from end of January (20-31st) and stay shut right through until mid of February (8th – 12th) in 2011.

This will not be the case only for our factories but for all in China, as it is a national holiday. Our suppliers will be very busy during the few weeks leading to the holiday.

As in previous years, we advise you to take precautions and start ordering early.
