Then, not necessarily on the same day but always at midnight, there's a mighty firework display that will put the municipal council in the red for another year. But at least it's enjoyed by the inhabitants, pets, stray dogs, elderly folk trying to sleep, and feathered creatures of all denominations.
Every day's a holiday somewhere, just never in the same place on the same day, so if you work in Lisbon but live someplace else, consider yourself very lucky. Lisbon celebrates Saint Anthony, Porto's holiday is on Saint John's Day, the middle of the country has a knees-up on Saint Peter's Day.
This is a picture of a Portuguese worker who has just been told that in the future the country will celebrate one day and one day only in June, not the whole month, and will put an end to the extra-extra long weekends or "pontes" that has put Portuguese output at zero for 30 days.
