HACER PUENTE     
When a public holiday in Spain falls on a Tuesday or Thursday it is common practice for employers to make the Monday or Friday a holiday as well and to give everyone a four-day weekend. This is known as hacer puente. When a named public holiday such as the Día de la Constitución falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday, people refer to the whole holiday period as e.g. the puente de la Constitución.
