Holidays 2024: how long will we have to wait for the next long weekend

Gone are the long weekends, which for many brought the joy of having only a two-day work week, and enjoying seven days off. However, the holiday calendar for 2024 will have an impasse in extended breaks, since in the coming months there will be no non-working days that constitute long weekends.

For the next long weekend, which will be three days, We will have to wait until October. Yes, until October. Why, if in the middle there are dates that are holidays? Because July 9, Independence Day, falls on a Tuesday, it is immovable and there will be no tourist weekend that Monday the 8th.

In addition, August 17, the date on which the death of General Don José de San Martín is commemorated, falls on a Saturday and also forms other holidays that do not run on the calendar.

In September, as you know, there are no holidays. The exception will be for those teachers who celebrate Teacher’s Day every 11th of that month. This 2024, the date falls on Wednesday and each educational institution defines whether there are classes or not. The students, who have their day on the 21st, will celebrate on a Saturday.

In this way, the closest long weekend on the calendar will be the Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity (October 12). This date also falls on a Saturday, but on Friday the 11th of that month there will be a long weekend holiday for tourist purposes, which will constitute a three-day break.
