In Mexico, public holidays are legislated at the National, State and Municipal levels. These holidays are observed nationwide, but each state and/or city and/or region may have its own holidays as well.


In Mexico there are 3 major kinds of holidays:

  • Statutory holiday: Holidays observed nationwide and employees (private and publics) are entitled to a day off with regular pay.
  • Civic holiday: These holidays are observed nationwide, but employees are not entitled to a day-off.
  • Festivities: These are traditional holidays to honor religious events, such as Carnival, Holy Week, Easter, etc. or public celebrations, such as Mother's day, Father's day, Valentine's Day, etc.
