In July, the bridge from July 1 to 3 will be the only holiday weekend of the monthdespite the fact that next July 20 will be a day of rest for the celebration of the national holiday of Independence.
Many people decide to go on a trip in the different festive bridges that are celebrated in the country, but some enjoy these without knowing why they are considered holidays in Colombia or in the world.
It should be remembered that Colombia is one of the countries where most holidays are celebrated. This is the festive number 12 of this 2023 and these are the reasons why you can rest a little more this weekend.
The day of Saint Peter and Saint Paul is celebrated on July 3, despite the fact that the original date of commemoration for these two saints is June 29but so that Colombians can enjoy these days, thanks to the Emiliani Law, that allowed the holidays to be passed, for the most part, to the first day of the week, and that they were rest, was moved to Monday, July 3.
