Cai Jiming, a Tsinghua University professor and the principal of the holiday reform planning group (our post of November 17, 2007) has floated the idea that the October 1st, National Day, 3-day public holiday should be reduced to 1 day only to make room for 2 new, more traditional public holidays.
However, a recent online poll on the "sina.com" website, shows that almost 80% of respondents reject the idea of tampering with last year's overhaul of the Chinese public holidays system (2007-12-17), which saw the cancellation of one Golden Week of public holidays (1999-09-20) and the addition of more traditional public holidays.
