大礼拜dà lǐ bài
“big weekend”(Saturday and Sunday) In 1994, the Chinese government passed the official 44-hour work week. This means that Chinese who work in companies that follow this guideline have alternating weekend-“big”and “small” weekends. “Big weekend”means people get Saturday and Sunday off. “Small weekend” means they must work on Saturday (a full day).
这个星期是大礼拜,所以星期六很多人会去香山.我不想去,人一定很多。
This week is the“big weekend” , so a lot of people will go to the Fragrant Hills on Saturday. I don’t want to go because there will be too many people.
