Mexicans are deeply religious and has respect towards their culture for which they celebrate the tradition, history and important events of their country. The public holidays of the country are based on constitutional, civic, and pleasant vacations which are set according to the laws of state, national and the community government. In some holidays people can take their time off from work, other holidays are observed with people not taking time off from their works.
In Mexico, there are three main types of holidays, namely: statutory holidays, civic holidays, and festivities. Statutory holidays, known in Spanish as “días de asueto” or “feriados”, are legislated by the federal government. These special days are also ruled by Mexico’s Federal Labor Law, or the “Ley Federal del Trabajo” in Spanish. Most of the workers of both the public and the private companies are entitled to regular paid day offs during these days.
