Thu 6 Dec – Spanish Constitution Day‘Dia de la Constitución’ - Marks the anniversary of a referendum held in Spain on 6 December 1978

(Fri 7 Dec - ¡¿Puente de Dia de la Constitución?!)

Sat 8 Dec – The Immaculate Conception ‘Inmaculada Concepción’ – ‘Solemnidad de la Inmaculada Concepción de Santa María Vergen’

We can expect to see on the RED days – which are National Bank/Public Holidays all Public Buildings and Offices; Banks, Insurance companies, Utility businesses, Legal Agencies, Post Offices and Medical Centres, etc. etc. being CLOSED throughout Spain.

If a public holiday falls on a Thursday or Tuesday, it is often the practice to "make the bridge" (hacer puente) by taking the Friday or Monday off so creating a very long weekend.

Most Bars and Restaurants, and Bazaars will be open – together with some shops and private businesses (but only a minority) who may choose to open – such as newsagents, bakeries, petrol stations, etc.

The larger Supermarkets – but generally not MERCADONA - should be open and perhaps may adopt their normal Sunday opening hours

As always – if you are unsure – it is advisable to shop before the 'Fiesta' day if you can - ¡por si las moscas! (just in case)
