[China's “Two Sessions”全国两会] Netizens support extending holiday春节放假延长至元宵节符合中国国情

Beijing - The public has responded with vigorous support for an NPC deputy's proposal to extend the Spring Festival holiday from three days to 10.
More than 78 percent of about 27,600 respondents to a poll on www.people.com.cn voted in favor of the idea of Li Jing, who is also the mayor of Meishan city in Southwest China's Sichuan province.

Li said the lunar new year festival holiday was too short for family reunions, especially for the nation's 220 million migrant workers.

With hundreds of millions of people on the move during such a short time span, the holiday puts tremendous stress on the public transport system and suppresses tourism, he added.

He suggested the holiday be extended and cover the three adjacent weekends, which means the public could take a total of 16 days off and the floating population could spend the Lantern Festival, which falls on the 15th day of the lunar new year, with their families.

People would then have sufficient time to fully enjoy the traditional holiday with their families, Li said during an interview with People's Daily Online on Friday.

Most online voters agreed that extending the holiday will ease the burden on public transport and strengthen family ties.

"The Spring Festival is an occasion for family reunions and should be longer than the National Day holiday," one responder said in an online post. "Every year, I wish I could spend more time at home for the Spring Festival, but I always have to go back to work. I hope the NPC will approve this proposal."

Another online comment read: "Extending the Spring Festival holiday could prevent the annual transportation crush, which has in recent years resembled an exodus of fleeing refugees."

Most of the about 10 percent who opposed the idea cited difficulties readjusting to work after the break. Some pointed out that office morale was generally low during the first week after the holiday.

"After the six-day holiday, many people come back to work feeling absent-minded," one respondent said.

Some who opposed the extension suggested adding the Lantern Festival as an official holiday.

Another 10 percent said lawmakers should carefully study the impacts before they make any decisions on holidays.

“春节放假延长至正月十五。”全国人大代表、四川眉山市长李静的这条建议,昨日在微博上得到了广大网友的力挺,纷纷留言表示希望能够实行。



    为此,某网站专门针对此事做了调查,调查显示近八成网友支持春节放假延长至元宵节,不少网友力挺春节放假到正月十五,只有极少数网友表示反对,认为延长时间同样无法缓解交通压力。将春节七天假日延长到元宵佳节,个人看来,肯定利大于弊,符合中国国情。



   首先,延长春节假期使春节气氛更加浓烈,同时可以改变过年疲于奔命的状态,也能有效弘扬传统文化,虽然此建议不太可能快速实现,但贴近生活,提出来就很有意义。现在的春节法定假日是从初一到初七。除夕没有被列为法定假日,这一点就让很多人感到不方便,中国人对除夕的感觉还是很特殊的,此外,仅七天的假日很不方便,让很多在外工作的人群很难抽时间回家。


   其次,春节是中华民族的重要节日,放假时间过短,造成交通紧张、亲情交流时间少、假日经济的作用难以充分发挥,建议延长假日时间到正月十五为好!这样既可缓解交通压力,也可增进亲友间的感情。延长时间很好的诠释了春节回家与家人团聚的精髓。

   另外,延长春节假期是对中国传统文化的保护。在国人越来越多的崇洋媚外的过洋节。中华民族的传统文化更需要继承和发扬!元宵节作为传统节日,更应该例为法定节日。延长春节假期,不仅仅能够解决春运难题,更有利于深挖传统文化精髓,保护传统文化,弘扬民族文化特色。

   春节放假延长至元宵节,既可缓解交通压力,也能在长假中让大众感觉到家庭幸福感,更能体现出春节的重要性,春节就是中国的传统节日,比任何节日都要隆重,延长节日时间也是理所当然。
把握当下,才能创造继起的生命;展望未来,应该把握当下的机缘。
