After a week of online polling, the final results have been released, showing a general approval rating of 60 percent for the proposed overhaul of China's public holidays system.

The change, unveiled last month (2007-11-09), thus seems almost certain of coming into being, starting in 2008, one uncertainty being whether the Mid-Autumn Festival public holiday will be on the day of the festival, or the day after (as is the case in Hong Kong).
