The Consejo de Gobierno de la Comunidad de Madrid has published the list of official 2012 non-working public holidays (calendario laboral) in Spain's Autonomous Comunidad de Madrid.

After being absent from the Madrid Region's Calendario Laboral for many years (2007-09-30), San José, on March 19, will again become a regional public holiday in the Madrid community in 2012.

Contrary to what happened for the last 3 years (2010-09-12, 2009-10-07 and 2008-09-26), Corpus Christi will not be one of the regional public holidays of the autonomous community of Madrid for the calendar year 2012. This public holiday was restored in 2009 after being dropped as a national public holiday throughout Spain in 1976.

Interestingly, Corpus Christi was declared as one of the official 2011 regional public holidays of Spain's Autonomous Región of Castilla La-Mancha (2010-09-01). The Autonomous Región of Castilla La-Mancha has not yet announced its official list of 2012 public holidays and it will be interesting to see if it retains Corpus Christi as a regional public holiday in Castilla La-Mancha.

Finally, in addition to the aforementioned 14 regional public holidays in the autonomous region of Madrid, the city of Madrid itself observes May 15 (San Isidro) and November 9 (La Almudena) as municipal public holidays.
