There are four holidays of note and, if the 1st and 8th happen to fall on a Tuesday or Thursday, one gets to "faire le pont" or make the bridge between the weekend and the holiday thus getting a 4-day weekend... Youpi
- May 1st : Labour Day
- May 8th : Victory in Europe Day
- May 14 : Ascension
- May 25 : Whit Monday
So it goes...
