For those who have some free days - have a good times, while remebering what is this May Days about.

In Poland we have 1.05 - as a Labour Day (celebrating the archievements of workers), then 3.05 as a Constitution Day (celebrating the first modern constitution in Poland - 3.05.1791), 2.05 is usually also free (a day from the "paid holliday's allowance" - that is about 26 working days in Poland for each person - additionally to Public Holidays, or You have to work one of the saturdays to balance it).

This year it makes 4 days off :)

I'll spend it in the garden, relaxing, maybe meeting with some friends, making barbecue and other ways of "open air cooking".
If You are in (or near) Warsaw - please be wellcomed!

In China mayday is a legal holiday , there is 5 days off . When the day come , all of Chinese people out . You will find all of the scenic spot were filled with people, the only thing you can see is man' s head . So , the most sensible choice is to stay at home , just watching TV!

The 5 days off is NOT mandatory.  Many places are only closed 1 or 2 days.

In Poland regulation is that day-off during the Public Holiday is mandatory for all workers, so the persons "self-employeed" or owners of the shops and thei'r famillies may work.
Also in some kinds of institutions workers are allowed to work (national security services, gas stations, hospitals and other places where it is necessary and regulated by the law).

Braking this rule - is braking the law.
