On March 19, the traditional celebration of Father's day, a homage of Catholic origin in honor of St. Joseph, deeply rooted but which, however, is not festive nationwide. In some communities workers and students do have a free day, as in the Valencian Community. However, in other areas of Spain there are years when it is considered a regional holiday and others that are not. In the case of the 2019 labor calendar, there are five communities that consider that day as festive: Galicia, País Vasco, Navarra, Comunidad Valenciana and Murcia. Being a Tuesday, for some workers opens the possibility of making a bridge if they can afford to take Monday off.
In 2019 there are eight holidays common to all of Spain: New Year, Good Friday (April 19), May Day, August 15, October 12, November 1, December 6 and Christmas Day. That means that it only holds a festive bridge in all of Spain at the same time. And many Spaniards will hardly notice it because it falls in full August and there will be many people on vacation: August 15 falls on Thursday. The calendar is somewhat more generous if long weekends are added, two, since November 1 and December 6 will be held on Friday. It is the lowest number of official bridges in the country that allows the calendar and it happens because two other common holidays, the Kings Day and on December 8, fall on a Sunday.
However, the panorama of bridges changes if the regional festivities are added. Some have their own holidays and others spend the day off for national holidays that fall on Sunday through Monday. It happened on the day of Kings, on January 6. As it fell on a Sunday, Castilla y León, Navarra, Aragón, Murcia, Andalusia, Madrid, Extremadura, Canary Islands, Asturias, Ceuta and Melilla opted to extend the Christmas holidays one more day.
The same will happen in two days of Easter and Easter, Holy Thursday and Easter Monday. Normally these days are chained four holidays, but not in Spain at the same time. In 2019 in Catalonia and Valencia it will be a party from Friday 19 to Monday 22 April; in Andalusia, Asturias, Canary Islands, Extremadura, Galicia, Madrid, Murcia, Ceuta and Melilla will be from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21; in the Balearic Islands, Cantabria, Castilla-La Mancha, Navarre, Basque Country and La Rioja from Thursday 18 to Monday 22; in Aragon and Castilla y León will be a holiday from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21, but with the particularity that on Tuesday 23 both communities celebrate regional days, which many citizens could take a bridge with on Monday 22.
