Lai Xiaomin, deputy to the 12th National People's Congress, has called for extending the current one-week holiday for Spring Festival to 15 days. This is a great news, especially for those who have to take a long journey home. And a long holiday can also ease the heavy traffic  and stimulate economic growth. A public poll shows that 95.45 percent of respondents want a longer Spring Festival holiday. What do you think?
I'd vote for a longer holiday.

I'll say yes. The Spring Festival is the most important festival in China and the celebrations should be at least two weeks. Especially for now, many people have to leave home and family to find a better-paid job. They spend several day during the travel and there is not much time left to celebrate the holiday with their family. Just look at the left-behind children who meet their parents once in a year. It is heartbreaking!

My answer is yes!! With all the travelling people have to do to see their families and the extra days they have to work leading up to the holiday. I believe 2 weeks in justifiable!!
