Wednesday most people are off or at least off half the day. 1st of May (Labour day) is a public holiday here and the 17th of May is a national holiday as well.
the 30th of April (Queensday) in Hollandin
the US Nothing stopped for Good Friday and Easter at all .Perhaps 4th of July and Christmas are holidays
USA--The top holidays are probably 4th of July, you usually get a day or two off for that, and Christmas... oh and Thanksgiving.

Hi guys... the topic is becoming more interested..Chinese food is one of Chinese culture.. It has a long long history... Lots of my friends like Chinese food.. Here I would to share what i knew about Chinese food with you guys..:
As we know that Chinese culinary arts have a long history. Chinese dishes appeal to the senses through colour, shape and taste. For local styles, Beijing cuisine combines the best features of different regional styles. Shangdong cooks are good at cooking seafood. Sichuan cooks specialize in chilies and hot peppers and Sichuan dish is famous for aromatic and spicy sauces. Guangdong cooking makes use of many ingredients. They look for fresh, crisp textures. Dishes are strong but not greasy, and light but delicate. There is a saying that "southerners have a sweet tooth, and northerners crave salt". For myself I like Guangdong(Canton) food, they taste so good..;)

that is right. there are so many types of chinese food. it can be divided into eight styles. you almost can find any types of food in this eight styles. no matter spicy food, sweet food, or some others. ;);)
i think everybody will like chinese food. i have not heard any people say they do not chinese food. the problem is most of chinese food are much more difficult than some weestern food. would you agree?
