Good old Mexico and their public holidays. From September to May in particular there are an abundance of holidays which invariably mean a day or two off. Actually last year was a bit rubbish, because so many holidays fell on weekends. Unlike the UK, holidays generally aren’t moved to the nearest Monday, and if they happen on a Sat or Sun…tough luck! Although they are moving one or two to Mondays, this being one of them.
Tomorrow is Constitution Day, but we all have Monday off. To commemorate the signing in Queretaro of the constitution in 1917. Which incidentally, permits all Mexicans to keep guns in their homes, states that all Mexicans are equal…but the woman is responsible for the development of the family, and the people have a right to strike. Which is exercised on an exceptionally regular basis!
