Notes:

A Government spokesman said, "As Labour Day and the Birthday of the Buddha in 2022 both fall on a Sunday, the day following them will be designated as a general holiday in substitution. In addition, since the day following the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival in 2022 falls on a Sunday, the second day following that Festival will be designated as a general holiday in substitution.  Furthermore, as Christmas Day in 2022 falls on a Sunday, the second weekday after Christmas Day will be designated as a general holiday in substitution."

A Government spokesman said, “As the first day of January and National Day in 2023 both fall on a Sunday, the day following them will be designated as a general holiday in substitution. Moreover, as Lunar New Year’s Day in 2023 falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year will be designated as a general holiday in substitution.”
