As a retailer in Canada, I would haveto say that this is not a good idea without some thought put into how to keep international trade flowing smoothly. Since China is,for lack of a better term, the world's "factory floor", the shutdown during the Spring festival brings a certain amount of disruption for businesses around the world. Not only do businesses have to wait until the current Festival ends, for production to begin again, they must also wait a further two weeks for that production to get caught up with the current world demand for goods. This not only puts a strain on businesses, but it also puts a strain on the Chinese worker, who has to double, or even quadruple the output to make up for the lost production time.

If the Spring festival holiday was doubled to 15 days, the stress on Chinese workers would be incredible. Instead of taking 2 weeks to catch up with international orders, it would take a month, or more.

Do you really want the manufacturing sector to turn into the world's biggest Foxconn?
It's hard to win an argument with a smart person. It's damned near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.

Yeah right! Why not extend the holiday to 365 days a year and get the full benefit to the economy of not working.

Would it be possible to order larger quantities, in preparation of the Chinese New Year?

I remembered when I was an employee I look forward to all holidays. Once I become my own boss, I work during holidays.
