Interesting Place - Portugal

The Portuguese government has cut four of its 14 annual public holidays in an attempt to trim its budget deficit and boost economic output.

(All Saints Day, Corpus Christi, a commemoration of the formation of the Portuguese Republic and a holiday celebrating independence from Spanish rule will all now be regular working days.

As you may know, I live in Germany and today is Corpus Christi.  Now I understand why Joao was asking why I was on a break again and I feel guilty.)
