新京报/The Beijing News has a very short article on the arrangements for the upcoming National Day holiday:

昨天,市政府办公厅转发国务院办公厅通知,2008年国庆节放假安排不变,仍从9月29日开始。

按照通知要求,国庆节假期从9月29日至10月5日放假7天,其中,10月1日、2日、3日为法定假日,9月27日(星期六)、9月28日(星期日)两个公休日调至9月29日(星期一)、30日(星期二),10月4日(星期六)、5日(星期日)照常公休。

Toldya it was short. Basically: The holiday runs from September 29 to August 5. The weekend of September 27 (Saturday) and 28 (Sunday) has been shifted to September 29 (Monday) and 30 (Tuesday). The weekend of October 4 and 5 is a regular weekend. I guess that means that Saturday September 27 is a working Monday and Sunday September 28 is a working Tuesday.

Dammit, I knew I was getting off too lightly with the Mid-Autumn holiday.

Anyway, what I guess this means for teachers and students is that on Saturday September 27 we have Monday classes, and on Sunday September 28 we have Tuesday classes, but for crying out loud don’t quote me, wait for your schools to confirm their own interpretation of the official pronouncement.

For people with real jobs, you’ll probably have to shuffle your papers around and pretend your busy on that weekend like on any weekday. Do you guys ever actually work?
