I don't get any time off for Christmas, and any of the traditional North American holidays that most school teachers enjoy.
I do get usually six to eight weeks off in January/February-ish depending on the lunar calendar with either full pay or partial pay for Chinese Spring Festival (Chinese New Years).
I then get a week off May 1st for Labour day.
Then somewhere in the late Spring I get another three days off for QingMing and the Dragon Boat Festival.
In September, I get a further three days off for Mid-Autumn Festival/Moon Harvest festival.
Then October 1st another weekish off for National Day which is basically modern China's birthday.
And all these with pay. Oh yeah. Kind of sucks having so much time off, but it gives me time to catch up on my lesson planning and marking!!!
