As you may or may not know, Chinese New Years holidays are just around the corner, I think it starts at the end of January. Then, every worked in China has vacation for a week or two. All shops, and the mailing service too, will come to a complete halt.

If you have something you need to order from China, a laser or components or whatever, you better hurry because if you wait too long your order will be stuck until everyone is back at work and the backlog is cleared which can take a VERY long time!

The traditional Chinese New Year celebrations typically last 15 days and this year it spans from Jan 31 to Feb 14 : HERE

PS : But I'd avoid making last minute orders on the CNY eve of Jan 30 which is the family reunion dinner day. Companies close from noon onwards to give employees half a day off to prepare.

Hmm, I ordered a few things from DX on the 7th. Hopefully it's shipped out before then...

It sucks in some states (including mine) anything that is arial is illegal... Makes me sad because 4th of July, me and my dad whip up some nice M-80's... People who buy them are never disappointed!
