Spain 2018 Basque Public Holidays Announced
 
(Posted on Wednesday, April 26, 2017)

The executive of Spain's Basque autonomous region (País Vasco) has released a draft of its annual calendar of official regional public holidays ("calendario laboral") and bank holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2018 in Spain's Basque region.

After a couple of years of heated debate (12-Dec-2013, 03-Dec-2013, 15-Nov-2013, 30-Oct-2013, 08-Jun-2013 and 26-May-2013) around the October 25, Basque regional public holiday, added 7 years ago (23-Apr-2010), the executive of Spain's autonomous region of the País Vasco decided, 2 years ago (01-Jul-2015), to side-step the issue and declare October 7, 2016, the 80th anniversary of the first Basque government in Gernika, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Spain's Basque autonomous region, while appeasing those that had been clamoring for Santiago Apostol (July 25) to replace October 7, by also declaring July 25 as a Basque regional public holiday in 2016, taking advantage of the fact that the semi-annual March 19, San José, public holiday would fall on a weekend in 2016.

In 2018, as was the case last year (11-May-2016 and 19-Apr-2016), the semi-annual March 19, San José, public holiday will be omitted, and more surprisingly, the aforementioned calendar of official regional public holidays ("calendario laboral") and bank holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2018 in Spain's Basque region will not include Santiago Apostol, on July 25.
