Background Information

Governing Law: The law gorverning public holidays in Mexico is Article 74 of the Federal Labor Law (LFT) dating from 1970, as amended in January 2006 by the Decreto por el que se reforma el artículo 74 de Ley Federal del Trabajo (Diario Oficial, 2006-01-17, núm. 12, pág. 52).  Public holidays in Mexican labor law are divided into 2 categories: compulsory (días feriados obligatorios) and commonly granted (días feriados otorgados usualmente). In the above listing, holidays belonging to the second category are shown in grey, with the exception of the eve of Christmas and of the New Year which we have not included as they are rarely given .  Weekend Public Holidays: Public holidays that occur on a weekend remain on that date (ie. they are not moved to another date, such as the following Monday, for example). However, some public holidays changed from a fixed date to the 1st or 3rd Monday of the month in 2006 and others followed in 2007 .  January 6: Día de los Santos Reyes or Epiphany is the day when Mexicans exchange Christmas presents.  Carnaval is a Mexican event that kicks off a five-day celebration of the libido before the Lent. Beginning the weekend before Lent, Carnaval is celebrated until Ash Wednesday.  Battle of Puebla is not a general public holiday, as per the "artículo 74 de la Ley Federal del Trabajo", but is included as a public sector holiday (Las dependencias y entidades de la Administración Pública Federal, cuyas. relaciones de trabajo se rijan por el Apartado B) del artículo 123 Constitucional) in the separate "Decreto por el que se reforma el Artículo Segundo del Decreto por el que se establece el Calendario Oficial".  May 10: Mother's Day, Due to the importance of the mother in Mexican culture, Mother's Day is an especially significant holiday. It is so important that it is a day off at the U.S. embassies in Mexico.  Dia de la Virgen de Guadalupe (December 12) is not an official holiday, but its temple attracts over 24 million visitors a year and many employers give their workers the day off. In addition, one of our sources, at Banco de México has indicated that that day is also marked as the Día del Empleado Bancario (day of the bank employee).  Mexico International Codes MX and MEX (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .mx (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Mexico information and news: Bank of Mexico (Mexico central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Mexico maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Mexico), and Wikipedia (includes Mexico commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
