Mother's Day and Labour Day

Santiago del Teide, Iglesia de San Fernando

This Sunday, 1st May coincide Día de la Madre (Mother's Day in Spain) and Día del Trabajo - more fully entitled Día Internacional de los Trabajadores - (Workers' Day or Labour Day - labour as in work, not as in birth), the latter of which will be celebrated with a day off work (in leiu) on Monday, 2nd May, which is a National Public Holiday.

Mother's Day is going to be celebrated in an unique manner with a Fiesta Intercultural India-Canaria (which hardly requires translating), running from 5:30pm to 9:30pm in the plaza in Santiago del Teide, with elements from both cultures including folk music, dance, theatre and a festival of lights as part of the fiestas for the Virgen del Rosario, patron of the municipality and organised by the town hall along with various organisations from the Comunidad Hindú de Canarias.




Elsewhere on the island, examples include La Orotava on Saturday, 30th April and in Adeje until May 1st there are "commercial campaigns" (as if you could miss the advertising) aimed at getting you to buy gifts, of course, but also helping to dynamise local economies and often with some special entertainments thrown in around shopping areas.
