It’s the most wonderful time of the year, dear readers! And no, we aren’t talking about Christmas, we’re talking about the release of the 2019 public holiday schedule (aka holiday planning time).

While variations of the schedule have appeared on various social media accounts over the past couple weeks, below is the real deal, the official holiday for next year as released by the General Office of the State Council earlier today.

One major change to the schedule: you'll only get one day off for May Day 2019 instead of three. Plan accordingly!

Now, without further ado, here are your 2019 public holidays.
