Why is Lantern Festival not a legal holiday in China

Although the Lantern Festival is an important national traditional festival in China, it is still not a legal holiday. There are some suggestions to establish it as a national statutory holiday, which has been seriously studied by the head of the national development and Reform Commission. Considering that the total number of days of national legal holidays should not be increased at present, and the Lantern Festival is close to the Spring Festival, although the Mid Autumn Festival is also adjacent to the national day, but in comparison, the Mid Autumn Festival has a greater impact, so the Lantern Festival will not be added as a legal holiday temporarily.
