Spanish Holidays

I see i am the fist one to answer this question, there are a lot of holidays in Spain, even every village or region has it´s own holidays. Each village has a saint (padron) and on the name-day of this saint the village will celebrate.

Some regions have different reasons for a "fiesta" although the Spanish will find reasons very quickly...

In the Valencia region where i am each village celebrates the end of the the North-African occupation called Moros y cristianos. The whole village is divided in two camps, the Christians and the Moors. Most of the time, when a family is Moors, so are the children, so the tradition continues many generations. Viva Mexico

National holidays are unique to a nation so Spanish National holidays would not be celebrated in other countries. Spain has a strong Roman Catholic history and celebrates many Roman Catholic holidays. Roman Catholic holidays are celebrated according to the ecclesiastical calender of the Church of Rome so they are celebrated the same day all over the world. Other Spanish speaking countries will celebrate these religious holidays the same day as they are celebrated in Spain. If they are a national holiday in Spain that is a coincidence, and a reflection of the Spanish Catholic faith.
