1---My niece will get married this Friday. Can I take Friday off from work?
2---I know we have been busy recently, but my mom is under the weather. Do you mind if I take tomorrow off?
3---He has handed over his work to his colleague, because he is on annual and marriage leave, on a long holiday.
4----I haven't taken any leave days yet, because I will get married in the end of this year, I want to apply (ask)  for an annual leave and marriage leave together at that time. 
5---New Year's Day is the first day of the year. How do you celebrate the New Year's Day? 
         people in certain countries gather on beaches and run into the water to celebrate the new year.  I still know that December,  25th  is Christmas Day. It is a western traditional festival. They decorate their houses for Christmas.
        In China, The Spring Festival is a happy and peaceful holiday, It is also a family reunion day, where all family members are given a chance for a holiday leave to go home and celebrate the festival with other family members including the newly born children.on the New Year's Eve, the whole family gather carouse, sharing happiness.
       In the northern region have the tradition of eating dumplings.
       New Year's Eve in the south have the habit of the Chinese New Year to eat rice cakes, symbol of the New Year sweet life and prosperity.
        The Spring Festival, involves playing firecrackers (fireworks) , posting the blessings on calligraphy and painting, decoration in the residential  areas and doors and Windows of houses. It is the most traditional common custom of the festival.
       Festival atmosphere is not only in families, but is also around the streets. In some major streets they perform the lion dance and  the dragon dance in the open. some people go to the temple fairs.  They continue celebrating to conclude the fifteenth day of the Lantern Festival after the Spring Festival is really finished.
      春节是个欢乐祥和的节日,也是亲人团聚的日子,离家在外的孩子在过春节时都要回家欢聚。除夕晚上,全家老小都一起熬年守岁,欢聚酣饮,共享天伦之乐,北方地区在除夕有吃饺子的习俗,在南方有过年吃年糕的习惯,象征新一年生活甜蜜蜜,步步高。节日的热烈气氛不仅洋溢在各家各户,也充满各地的大街小巷,一些地方的街市上还有舞狮子,耍龙灯,演社火,游花市,逛庙会等习俗。直要闹到正月十五元宵节过后,春节才算真正结束了。 过春节,燃放爆竹,在门窗上张贴字画祈福、装点居所,是这个节日最普遍的习俗。

       公历就是阳历,农历就是阴历= The Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar, The lunar calendar is a lunar calendar. 
      The Gregorian Calendar is a solar Calendar because it depends on the sun. there are several Solar Calendars and the Gregorian Calendar is one of them. 
        According to the Gregorian calendar January the 1st is New Year's Day.
        According to the Chinese calendar, Chinese New Year begins at the first day of the first lunar month.  it is called the Spring Festival.
       According to the Gregorian Calendar, my birthday is on the seventh day of December. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, my birthday is on the sixth day of November.
        If January 1st falls on a Thursday we often adjust our work calendar to have off three continuous days. We would then the take off from work Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We would return to work on Sunday.
       In modern China the Spring Festival is more important than New Year's Day.  The Spring Festival holiday is three days long.  However, to let people warmly celebrate the festival, vacation days are adjusted to seven days in a row.The starting date of the Spring Festival moves around according to the lunar calendar.
               
     The solar calendar is 365 days and a quarter of day.   
      the day is 24 hours           the quarter is 6 hours                  6+6+6+6 = 24 hours = day
      1- 365 +1/4
      2- 365 +1/4
      3- 365 +1/4
      4- 365 +1/4 (366) 
      2013 (February was 28 days)
      2014 (February was 28 days)
      2015 (February was 28 days)
      2016 (February was 29 days)
      2017 (February will be 28 days)
      2018 (February will be 28 days)
      2019 (February will be 28 days)
      2020 (February will be 29 days)
              This year is 2016.  It is called a leap year. 
             The Earth completes it circle around the sun in 365 and a quarter of a day = this makes a solar year .
        
       I usually spend the weekend with my family. But this weekend I could not be with them, because my department manager called me Saturday and asked me to work overtime on Sunday. 
    Yesterday was Sunday and I was very busy. I left home around 7:30 AM and did not go home until 4:30 PM. At noon, I had lunch after which,  I went back to work. My daughter called  and asked me to meet her after work to accompany to the hairdresser to have her hair curled.  At 6 PM we met and went to the hairdresser's. We stayed there until 11:20 PM. We arrived home around midnight. We took our showers then went to sleep.
