Portugal has 13 holidays that are acknowledged by the government. The organizations and labour Unions recognize and offers paid leave to their workers. The government’s role in holidays is critical as inspired by the culture of the entire country. Due to the government’s austerity measure, in 2013, it suspended a few holidays which are to be active again in 2019. The holidays in Portugal are celebrated on the day on which they fall; those that come on Sunday do not shift to any week or workday. It implies that the workers do not benefit from holidays that occur on Sundays or Saturdays. The nation has a rich heritage that gets the people celebrating some festivals that are not listed as public holidays.

All businesses close down on these holidays except supermarkets that opt to close after working half the day. On this day, Portugal’s community is not active. The public transport is reduced with less traffic as compared to regular workdays. The holidays are motivated by culture, democracy, social affiliations such as the plight of women rights, labour laws, and religion. As a country, Portugal’s society is very religious, and this has led to the many holidays they have based on religion. Some of the holidays are a week-long as the organizers find fusing a few holidays such as those for their favorite Saints, Anthony, Peter, and John. Such festivals are colorful as faithful and the community alike commemorates this special day.

Shops that are in visitor's known regions often stay open though many strictly observe the holidays and close. The public and entertainment joints close early, to begin the holiday and resume once the holidays come to an end.
