Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It looks like we are three countries so far, all in southern Europe and all using religious dates as national holidays.  Does that tell us something?  (I wonder how it is in Greece.  Deviousdiva?)

I am all for 3-4 day weekends a couple times a year because I don´t want to see a productivity-based life, but this case is really extreme just before the holidays.  Besides mixing church and state, in Spain, a bridge weekend becomes a car-based problem:  Traffic congestion on both trips, deaths and injuries by accident and extra pollution.

What do you think?
