Santa National Day?

Beijing, China

"Did you have a good National Day?" I asked smelly, Brit-sounding gentleman who had not left (for more than a day, anyway). The memorable answer did not come from him but from the desk clerk eavesdropping. He said, "Not really." "Of, course! You had to work!" I assumed out loud. "No, since I'm grown up, it is not special." Would the average American adult say that about the Fourth of July? Is the Chinese National Day the equivalent of Santa Claus?
