Spain's Deputy Prime Minister, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, has confirmed that the planned move of some mid-week Spanish public holidays would not take place until 2014.
The topic of eliminating bridge public holidays by moving mid-week public holidays to adjoin a nearby weekend, was raised shortly after the current government was elected (12-Jan-2012), but remained dormant until late last week (03-Nov-2012), when the national government of Spain has gazetted the list of official national non-working public holidays (calendario laboral) in Spain for the upcoming calendar year 2013 without any change to the mid-week public holidays of 2013.
Apparently, the Catholic Church has indicated that it would agree to the November 1st All Saints day being moved to a nearby Monday, provided that the December 8, Immaculate Conception public holiday remain on its set date of December 8, regardless of the weekday on which this annual public holiday falls on.
