Spain's Ministry of Labour has announced that final decisions concerning mid-week public holidays in the list of 2014 national non-working public holidays (calendario laboral) had not yet been made and that the official list of national non-working public holidays in Spain for 2014 was expected at the end of November or beginning of December.

Once again (2012-08-01), the Ministry of Labour denied that any Spanish public holidays were to be canceled. But the government is discussing, internally, and with the Catholic Church, the moving of mid-week public holidays to the nearest Monday or Friday.

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 (2012-01-12), but was not followed by any immediate action. It was later (2012-11-03) slated for implementation for 2014.
