I'm Taiwanese, but I live in South Africa. I'm going to list some of the days we celebrate in Taiwan and South Africa.

In Taiwan, there are many Chinese traditional festivals, I'm only going to name the major ones:
Chinese New Year
Lantern Festival
Qingming Festival
Dragon Boat Festival
Mid-Autumn Festival

And here's some of the general public holidays:
New Year's Day
228 Peace Memorial Day
Children's Day
Teacher's Day
National Day (Double Tenth)

In South Africa:
New Year's Day
Easter
Christmas

And some public holidays in South Africa that's got a historical background (resistance against the apartheid government):
Human Rights Day
Freedom Day
Youth Day
Heritage Day

NOTE

I didn't include the full list of the days that we celebrate in Taiwan and South Africa - there's just too many and I've only picked out the main ones.
