I think people say that because there is another festival called 元宵 (Yuan Xiao) on the 15th day of the first lunar month which is the first full moon of the luner year.  After that day the new year festival is considered to be over.  Despite the length of the official public holidays, even now some businesses are closed for the first 10 to 15 days of the first lunar month.  In the past when the pace was slower people tended to take more days off.
