In a quiet year for substitution days, the only deviation from the standard calendar is that Spanish Constitution Day falls on a Sunday, so the following Monday will be observed a holiday in lieu.
As All Saints Day falls on a Sunday, it will be replaced by Canary Islands Day on May 30th. This doesn’t affect the number of non-working days as this change switches a Sunday with a Saturday.
