Our National Day is coming. We shall have days of rest, presumably weeklong holidays againjust like the weeklong May Day holidays. Many people welcome weeklong holidays and are busyplanning where and how to spend the seven days; whereas many other people do not applaud. As to me, weeklong holidays mean a span of dullness, boredom, melancholy andhelplessness, and I think anyone who had experienced the holiday sufferings in May wouldshare my feelings.
I well remember that from May Day, to be more exact, a few days earlier than May Day, theshopping season started. Most shops extended their shopping hours to respond to theiroverwhelmingly enthusiastic customers. There were special sales with discount couponsand instant lucky draws and various sales promotions in nearly every big store to lure potentialcustomers into spending more. Crowds of shoppers flocked towards department stores, enjoyingtheir high purchasing power.
There were traffic jams almost everywhere, people waited in long queues at bus-stops and taxi-stands, looking entirely exhausted. Tempers flared when people got pushed or if someone elsecut the queue. Impatient drivers honked at each other every now and then.
The railway station was congested with travelers who rushed to the platform like a swarm ofbees and then squeezed their way into the train for seats as if there would be no tomorrow.
In the restaurants, tables were shared. A platoon of waiters filed out from the kitchen armedwith various containers of eatables. Orders were taken feverishly and then shouted across to thekitchen. Excitement reigned everywhere as waiters ran hither and thither to fill the orders.
The above are just some vivid scenes that happened a few months ago. Everywhere was chaosand chaos everywhere. I am really afraid the drama will soon be repeated.
True, weeklong holidays help activate economy, but what about after-holiday depression? Nodoubt, people can have a lot of leisure, but leisure does not always bring a lot of pleasure.
