* Hong Kong Government is very generous when it comes to official holidays. Since the Ching Ming festival falls on a Sunday in 2015, Hong Kong Government decided to designate the following day as general holiday substitution. However, since the day following Ching May Festival is Easter Holiday, the next following day that is not itself a general holiday will be granted as an additional holiday.
