October 1 is China’s “National Day” holiday, this year marking the founding of the People’s Republic of China 65 years ago. It is like the 4th of July and Memorial Day combined and most of China is off of work for the entire week. It is also called “Golden Week” because Chinese citizens engage in an orgy of consumption and travel for the holiday.
National week, like the week long holiday at Chinese New Year, also means most companies who work in and with China are on hold as well.
