Every Sunday   Sunday

The second day of Lunar New Year 13 February Saturday
The fourth day of Lunar New Year 15 February Monday

The day following the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival 22 September Wednesday
National Day 1 October Friday
Chung Yeung Festival 14 October Thursday
Christmas Day 25 December Saturday
The first weekday after Christmas Day 27 December Monday

A Government spokesman said, "As the third day of Lunar New Year in 2021 falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year is designated as a general holiday in substitution. Besides, as Ching Ming Festival in 2021 falls on a Sunday, the following day will be designated as a general holiday in substitution.  However, as the day following Ching Ming Festival and Easter Monday fall on the same day, the next following day that is not itself a general holiday will be observed as an additional general holiday. With regard to the proposal for gradually increasing the number of statutory holidays, we need to make an objective assessment of the financial burden on employers brought by the proposal and its impact on the society and economy, etc.  After completing the analysis, we will submit it to the Labour Advisory Board for discussion this year."
