Between Halloween parties, Day of the Dead and various processions, we sometimes don’t remember what the official holidays are in Mexico, a calendar that has little and nothing in common with the calendar of the United States, Spain or the rest of the Ibero-American countries. It is important to mark these days well because if you have to work on these days, you must receive wage compensation under the Federal Labor Law (LFT).

What is the holiday calendar in Mexico for 2023? Using the LFT as a basis, there will be seven mandatory rest days in 2023, although days “defined by federal and local election laws, in the event of a regular election, for the purpose of holding Election Day” are not excluded.

Holidays in Mexico in 2023 will be as follows:

calendar day Celebration or holiday
Sunday, January 1 New Year
Monday, February 6 Mexican Constitution Day
Monday, March 2 Natalicio Benito Juarez
Monday, May 1 Labor Day
Saturday, September 16 independence Day
Monday, November 20 Revolution Day
Monday, December 25 Christmas

Holy Week 2023

Maundy Thursday and Good Friday will be celebrated on April 6 and 7, 2023 in Mexico, but LFT does not consider them obligatory rest days. This does not mean that some companies and organizations in the private and public sectors provide these days to employees. Just keep in mind that neither are May 5 (Battle of Puebla), October 12 (Columbus Day), November 2 (Day of the Dead) and December 12 (Virgin of Guadalupe Day).

Several reasons to holiday in Mexico

Every year on February 5, Mexico celebrates the anniversary of the Mexican Constitution. The origin is due to the fact that it was on this day, but in 1917, that the current version of the Political Constitution was promulgated, which came into force in May of the same year. The document was signed in Queretaro regarding the appointment of General Venustiano Carranza as president of the country.

Benito Juarez’s birthday is dedicated to the president, who was born on March 21, 1806 in San Pablo Guelatao, Oaxaca. Also known as Benemerito de las Americas, his fight against the French invasion became “a watershed of great change in Mexican history through the Constitution of 1857 and the War of Reform,” according to the Mexican government. .

Independence Day is reminiscent of the War of Independence, which began in the early morning of September 16, 1810, when priest Miguel Hidalgo issued the Cry of Dolores (by ringing church bells), and ended on September 27, 1827, with the triumphal entry of the Trigarante Army under the command of Agustin de Iturbide and Vicente Guerrero. Mexico City.

Finally, Mexican Revolution Day commemorates when Francisco I. Madero proclaimed the Plan of San Luis on November 20, 1910, which encouraged Mexicans to take up arms against the government of Porfirio Díaz, who remained in power for 36 years.
