I also come from China and I'd like to tell you something about our holidays. In China, we have there seven-day holidays every year which individually are Spring Festival holidays(the actual date will vary from Jan to Feb based on chinese lunar calendar), Labor's day holidays (1.May) and National's day (1. Oct.) Besides these, we also have new year holidays as western solar calendar and for some minority they have their own ethical holidays ,for example, Water-splashing Festival of the Dai nationality.

Why didn't you write to me?
Maybe you have been busy.
I missed out something about our holidays the other day.
That is chu-sok.
Chu-sok is a secondary holiday in Korea.
We return home to visit the family grave.
And we eat song-pyen which is rice cake something.
We have a great time with family.
