  1. To be fair, the concept of having the Monday off because Sunday was a holiday is just as weird to a Brazilian (and worthy of the “lucky/lazy bastard” comment) as having a holiday on a Tuesday (and taking Monday off as well) is to a Brit. They are just different ways of doing things but I do wish England had a few more bank holidays… :)

  2. Please observe that you have put 4+1 Carnival holidays. That’s not official. Only the Tuesday 21st Feb is an official holiday.

    The other ones we just party a little. Best!

  3. Laughing here ! It’s really nice to see this comparisons and a foreign vision of how things work here (SP). Awesome!
