Chinese Holiday this week

 

Just an FYI for those that do not know. This week is a Chinese holiday (9/30-10/7 Chinese time is 12 hrs ahead).

Updates, order processing, questions will be scarce if at all.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most

Seems like the Chinese sure do have a lot of holidays. Atleast 1 a month it seems where all of the business just shut down. If I had to work with them on a daily basis, I would have to take my business else where after a few months.

Looks like 55 or 56 holidays this year though some are on weekends and two are on the same date. Also I have no idea how many actually cause people to not go to work. When your cultural history goes back 2000+ years continuous you can accumulate a LOT of holidays.

Think how costly American manufacturing workers had to have been for American companies to move their manufacturing businesses to China with all their holidays. That move gave unwanted holidays to hundreds of thousands of American workers. Fortunately America is still number one in the manufacture of duck calls.

They sure do find a lot of reasons to close down.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.
