All Saints Day bank holiday on Monday

Sunday, November 1st is Todos los Santos, or Tosantos in Andaluz (i.e. All Saints' Day) and would be a national bank holiday all over Spain if it happened on a week day. Instead, the Bank Holiday is on Monday, creating what is creatively known as a puente, or bridge - i.e. a long weekend. Schools, banks and most shops are closed.
