Happy Oil Expropriation Day from Anarchapulco,
Actually, I am partially kidding. The Oil Expropriation Day holiday was last weekend. But it is nearly impossible to keep track of all the holidays as there is virtually one every week in Fiestaland. Plus, holidays elsewhere that are four days long (like Easter) are two weeks in Mexico... or Christmas, which is generally about a week off for most people from Christmas Eve until after New Year's Day is an entire month here.
I was actually sitting at my local hangout, Mangos, last weekend with a number of TDvers who either had moved here or were visiting and we were quite confused. The entire city was jam packed from Friday straight through until Tuesday and we were unsure of why.
