School is out for over 200 thousand students in BCS for Semana Santa Vacations. Kids will be out of school on Friday, March 27th and not returning until Monday, April 13th. Please be aware that several government offices will be closed for the week of the 30th to the 3rd. Banks will be closed Thursday, the 2nd and Friday, the 3rd out of tradition.

Grocery stores, department stores and most restaurants will be opened regular hours. Smaller businesses may or may not be opened. Therefore, it is always a good idea to call first to make sure they will be open.

Semana Santa is much like Spring Break up north but in Mexico, the Easter holidays are a combination of two weeks. The first week being Semana Santa, or Holy Week, which this year starts on Palm Sunday, March 29th and the second week being Pascua, which is Resurrection Sunday, April 5th, until the following Saturday.

Good Friday this year will Friday, April 3rd and Easter Sunday falls on Sunday, 5th. No easter egg hunts here folks.
