Spain celebrates two public holidays in one week

YESTERDAY (December 6) was a public holiday in Spain to celebrate Constitution Day, marking the anniversary of the approval of the Spanish Constitution in 1978 but passed with little pomp and ceremony and many local politicians, particularly in Catalonia attended work as a sign of their opposition to the current government.

The Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy gave a number of speeches promoting solidarity and praising the way in which the new constitution formed an important part of the transition from the old Spain following the death of General Franco.

Many will take advantage of the fact that Thursday December 8 is also a public holiday in celebration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception by ‘bridging’ the days to take a very long weekend, but parents weren’t so excited by the fact that they had to take their children to school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
