New Federal Holiday – Carnival of course!

Chances are,that where you live, you are not enjoying a four-day weekend.   Today and tomorrow are not federal holidays unless you live in Brazil and Argentina.

Its Carnival!!  Anyone who knows Argentina, knows it’s not a Carnival kind of country.  While there are some celebrations in the northern part of the country near Brazil, most Argentines will be watching their soccer club and not their dancing club.  In fact until this year, there wasn’t a Carnival long weekend in Argentina .  While I always enjoy a little down time with the family.  This year the Argentine government has added 4 federal holidays  and in the month of March they have two 4-day weekends.  That means the kiddos are averaging 4 days a week of school.

Call me a cynic but it has everything to do with the elections in October.  Enjoy your time off Argentines, and vote early and often.
