Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

National Holidays

1st January NEW YEAR'S DAY

6th January EPIPHANY

17th April  EASTER MONDAY (we go into the countryside to have picnics - kind of spring festival?.. and oddly enough, Easter Friday is NOT a holiday here.. go figure?)

25th April LIBERATION DAY (WW2)

1st May LABOUR DAY

2nd June ITALIAN REPUBLIC DAY (big military parade - but refers back to kicking out the Savoy monarchy by referendum!)

15th August  ASSUMPTION (When Mary was taken up to heaven...)

1st November ALL SAINTS

8th December IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

25th December CHRISTMAS

26th December St. STEPHEN (Boxing day)

...

Plus of course the local patron saint's day - Rome's is St. Peter and Paul, where I live it's St. Pancras Martyr (?)

So we have 11 national + 1 local = 12...

...whereas you have 9 national, 4 "not substituted" whatever that means but I presume still extant ;-) ...
plus 1 provincial and 2 local =  14...!!

(envy)
