Puentes and Holidays in Mexico

Anyone who is trying to do business with Mexico this week may have a hard time tracking down their Mexican counterparts because of the puente.  What is a puente?  Puente, which means bridge in Spanish, is another way to say "three day weekend" or "four day weekend".  Whenever a holiday falls on a Tuesday, many companies give employees the Monday off as well.  Holidays can vary from company to company, but this list for the remainder of the year should help you out:

November 1&2: Día de los Muertos
November 20: Mexican Revolution Day

December 12: Día de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe
December 16: Las Posadas
December 25: Navidad, Mexico celebrates the Christmas holiday.
