Although Monday April 29 is not an official public holiday, many individuals will be taking that day as a bridge to the following day's May Day public holiday, in a practice locally called hacer puente (making a bridge).
The bridge holiday effect will be even greater in Spain's capital, Madrid, as the May 1st public holiday will immediately be followed by a public holiday specific to Madrid and its province, on Wednesday, May 2, 2007.
