School will be out soon for over 200 thousand students in BCS for Semana Santa Vacations. Kids will be out of school on Friday, April 11th and not returning until Monday, April 28th. Please be aware that several government offices will be closed for the week of the 14th to the 18th. Banks will be closed Thursday, the 17th and Friday, the 18th 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, April 13th and the second week being Pascua, which is Resurrection Sunday, April 20th, until the following Saturday.

Good Friday this year will Friday, April 18th and Easter Sunday falls on Sunday, April 20th. No easter egg hunts here folks.
