Although there are exceptions these days for some shops, and the service and hospitality sectors, most other businesses will be closed during these holidays. It is always worth checking before you set off on a visit.

The dates sometimes change if the day falls on a weekend, and of course because Easter moves, those dates are not fixed. You can check the official calendar of working days on the Social Security website, by clicking this link,
