Tomorrow will be the famous dragon boat festival in China. Chinese culture says a famous poet was held unjustly by Chinese police and committed suicide by jumping into the river. So the idea of the dragon boat race is the people are racing on boats to save his life.

“The boat races during the Dragon Boat Festival are traditional customs to attempts to rescue the patriotic poet Chu Yuan. Chu Yuan drowned on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month in 277 B.C” more on the chinese dragon boat festival

The actual day is Thursday, but most companies in China also have Friday off, with the companies being open on Sunday to replace the friday. We’re doing the same here. Seems the foreign companies have Friday as a workday, but Sunday will be off.

I’ll still be working, Friday or Sunday, makes no difference! Cheers
