Most private schools tend to close for a couple of weeks as the students are generally not around.Certainly the three I have worked for in the last five years have done this.

In LTCs you get the legal minimum holiday (usually) which is 3 days for Chinese New Year. Of course this depends on the contract but in LTCs paid holidays are NOT the norm.

Most private English schools (training centers) will close for a couple of days. They will then run winter camps for students who haven't gone to their hometown or are locals.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
