Every year I get super jaded that our Hong Kong office get's Friday and Monday off for Easter and we don't get any days off for Easter (US government does not provide any national holiday time for Easter). This year I asked our HK GM about this:
Me: Did you know only 8% of the population in Hong Kong is Christian yet you get off for Easter holiday and we don't?
GM: You need to study more of our history. We used to be governed by England for more than a century. Many Religious holidays were based on the English culture. After 1997 we were guaranteed with no change for 50 years. The easiest thing to keep with no change is keep same holidays as before. This makes us happy and therefore easier for Chinese government to 'rule' us.
I thought that was interesting enough to share.
