Holidays and gift giving occasions in China

China loves to celebrate, and there are plenty of opportunities to do so, with festivals and public holidays throughout the year. When shipping to China around the dates below, it is important to keep in mind that parcels are not collected or delivered on Chinese public holidays. When sending parcels or gifts around festival dates, there are also replacement working days on the weekend to take into account, which may mean that your parcel gets delivered on a Saturday or Sunday.
