Loc: Milan (Italy) - Madrid (Spain)
Walzuhair suggested in another post to put our local holidays in the MM birthday iCal. Here are the Spanish ones (haven't we a lot of holidays?).<br>January 1st - Año Nuevo.<br>January 6th - Epifanía del Señor.<br>March 19th - San José.<br>April 17th and 18th - Jueves Santo y Viernes Santo (dates for 2003)<br>May 1th - Fiesta del Trabajo<br>May 2nd - Fiesta de la Comunidad de Madrid (just in Comunidad de Madrid)<br>May 15th - San Isidro (just in Madrid city)<br>August 15th - La Asunción de la Virgen<br>October 12th - Fiesta Nacional de España<br>November 1st - Todos los santos<br>November 9th - Nuestra señora de la Almudena (just in Madrid city)<br>December 6th - Día de la Constitución Española.<br>December 8th - Inmaculada Concepción.<br>December 25th - Natividad del Señor.<br><br><br>
Here in Costa Rica:<br>January 1st -Año Nuevo<br>April 11th- Celebración del Heroe Nacional Juan Santamaría<br>April 17th and 18th -Jueves y Viernes Santo (2003)<br>May 1st- Dia del Trabajo<br>July 25th- Anexion Provincia del Guanacaste<br>August 2th-Dia de la Virgen de Los Angeles<br>August 15th Dia de La Madre<br>September 15th- Dia de la Independencia de España<br>October 12th- Encuentro de 2 culturas (Dia de La Raza)<br>December 25th Navidad<br><br><br>
Along with the US national holidays we have state holidays.<br><br>Kam day - (King Kamehameha birthday)<br>Kuhio day - (Prince Kuhios birthday)<br>??? - (?? now known as State Hood day) oddly the same day that the US annex our buttts.<br><br>note: You must be a State or city and county employee to get those days off - Hence why I don't know the dates.<br><br>
US Holidays<br><br>* New Year's Day, January 1st.<br>* Martin Luther King Day, third Monday in January.<br>* Washington's Birthday, third Monday in February<br>* Memorial Day, last Monday in May <br>* Independence Day, July 4.<br>* Labor Day, first Monday in September.<br>* Veterans Day, November 11th <br>* Thanksgiving Day, fourth Thursday in November.<br>* Christmas Day, December 25th.<br><br>Not everyone gets all of these holidays off, such as Veteran's Day, Martin Luther King Day, Washington's Birthday, Columbus Day (which I did not list since I have never gotten that day off, I think it is in October). <br><br>EDIT: That does it, we're moving to Spain! 7-9 holidays for us in the US in general, 14 in Spain. No-brainer!<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by mikeb_X on 11/28/02 04:38 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
If you like holidays, you ought to consider moving back in time. Historians estimate that in teh medieval European world holidays accounted for something like one third of the calendar year. Not bad--except that you'd have to put up with all the other things that come with that, like the plague, a theocracy to make the ayatollahs in Iran blush at how easy they are on their people, brutal work and brutal punishments.<br><br>On the whole, I'll stay in the 21st century, thanks. But Spain woul be a good idea <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Right<br>There are 11 Federal paid holidays. You must be in the gov to get those.<br>Example Fed employees do not get any State holidays - but the state does reconize the top 7 federal ones that you listed and the 3 state ones.<br><br>Then you have the Celebrated days but its not a day off like.<br>Holloween<br>Easter<br>Valentines day<br>Our state has a May Day.<br><br>
