THE newly released calendar for public holidays in 2013 has upset a number of people who had planned to take a break at the beginning of the year.

新发布的2013年公众假期日历让许多曾计划在年初休息一下的人烦恼。
But it also offers the prospect of a six-day break if employers can be persuaded to give employees an extra day off.
但它也提供了一个为期六天休假的前景,如果雇主能被说服给员工额外一天假。
People will have 29 days off in seven public holidays, according to the calendar released by the central government yesterday.

But the actual holiday days add up to 11 when weekend days are subtracted and extra working days factored in.
但实际的假日累计有11天当周末被缩减同时额外的工作日被包括进来。
The New Year's Day holiday will run from January 1 to 3, but people need to work on the weekend of January 5 and 6.
元旦将从1月1日到3号,但人们需要在1月5日和6日的那个周末工作。
The dates have upset a number of people who complained online that they had assumed the holiday would run from Sunday, December 30 to January 1, as was widely believed based on common arrangements for holidays in previous years, and they would have to abruptly change their travel plans.
这一日期令许多人沮丧,他们在网上抱怨说他们曾认为假期将从周日开始,12月30日至1月1日,正如普遍相信的基于前几年假日常规安排,他们将不得不突然改变他们的旅行计划。
Kong Shuo, a Shanghai resident, said yesterday that she'll have to sell tickets she bought for three concerts in Beijing and return her air tickets as well. "I can't go, feeling bad," she said in an online post.
孔硕,一个上海居民,昨日表示她将不得不卖出她买的在北京的三场演唱会门票并返还她的机票。“我不能去,感觉不爽,”她在网上的一个帖子里说。
Another netizen said she had booked tourism packages between December 30 and January 1 on the assumption that the holiday would run from December 30. "The announcement comes too late," she complained.
另一个网民说原以为假日将从12月30日开始她已经预定了12月30日到1月1日的旅游一揽子服务。“这项宣布来得太迟了,”她抱怨道。
Airline companies also seemed to have assumed the wrong start to the holiday.
航空公司好像也错误假定了假期的开始日期。
Air tickets on December 30 had been priced much higher than those for January 1.
12月30日的机票价格远远高于1月1日的票价。
A ticket from Shanghai to Sanya in Hainan Province, for example, costs 1,890 yuan (US$304) for December 30, compared to the 1,320 yuan asked for January 1, according to China Eastern Airlines' website.
从上海到海南省三亚的机票,例如,在12月30日花费1890元(304美元),相比1月1日要价的1320元,根据中国东方航空公司的网站。

But not everyone is unhappy. Some are planning to ask for a leave on December 31 so they can enjoy a six-day break, and Shanghai travel agencies are working out new plans to accommodate this group of people.
但并非所有人都不高兴。一些人打算12月31日请假,这样他们就可以享受为期六天的休假,上海旅行社正在为这群人的食宿制定新计划。
The Shanghai Spring International Travel Service (Group) Co Ltd is replanning and promoting tour packages to Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand and Malaysia.
