Today is 3rd January 2017. It is the first or third day of school depending on which state you reside in Malaysia. However, it is not too soon to plan for your Chinese New Year holidays because it is only about slightly over 3 weeks away. Since the school will break for about a week, all races can plan for the holidays irrespective of whether you celebrate Chinese New Year or otherwise.
If you have not had enough of the holidays, this must certainly be good news for you. However, you may face a small challenge to persuade the reluctant little ones to return to school after the festive break!
The first two days of Chinese New Year 2017 falls on 28 January 2017 (Saturday) - 29 January 2017 (Sunday) this year.
The Festive Holidays 2017 or Cuti Perayaan 2017 as allocated by the Ministry of Education, Malaysia (Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia) are as follows:
