Over the years, it is Carnival which is proposed as a new annual public holiday in Portugal (2021-10-22, 2020-02-29, 2017-01-19, 2017-01-12 and 2017-01-02). Traditionally, Carnival is an annual optional public holiday for Portugal's public sector, as reconfirmed, following the reintroduction of 4 annual non-working public holidays in Portugal (2016-03-19, 2016-01-08 and 2012-08-01).
