With the end of the national holidays and a four-day long weekend, people are already wondering when the next holiday in the country will be.
And since, in addition to the main holidays such as September 18th and 19th, we also had Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th to celebrate, we are already thinking about what the next long weekend will be. You don’t have to wait long for this, because there are two public holidays in October.
The next holiday in the country is Monday, October 9th, the date that commemorates the meeting of two worlds and is the first long weekend of the month. Although this day, which commemorates the discovery of America, is originally the 12th, since it is a Thursday in 2023, it is scheduled for the previous Monday.
After that, the next holiday in Chile is Friday, October 27th, when Evangelical Church Day is celebrated. Although officially every 31st of this month is celebrated in the country, Law 20,299 states that if it falls on a Tuesday, as in 2023, it will be postponed to the Friday of the week before.
If this day falls on a Wednesday, the holiday is postponed to Friday of the same week.
The list of holidays would look like this:
- Monday, October 9th: Day of the meeting of two worlds.
- Friday, October 27th: Day of the Evangelical and Protestant Churches.
- Wednesday, November 1st: All Saints Day.
- Friday, December 8th: Immaculate Conception.
- Sunday December 17th: referendum to leave.
- Monday, December 25th: Christmas (non-waiverable holiday).
In addition, this year there will be a public holiday on Sunday, December 17th, due to the Brexit referendum, on which a decision will be made on the new constitutional proposal.
