Puerto Rico has a long list of holidays observed, and then there are those that are truly celebrated in true festive Puerto Rican style.  Puerto Rico observes holidays celebrated in the United States in addition to nine observed Puerto Rican holidays.  If you do the math, Puerto Ricans get to enjoy many holidays and as you may heard, they sure know how to party and celebrate, of course it helps having great weather all year round and gorgeous beaches everywhere.  Puerto Ricans were very smart to hold most holidays on a Monday, with so many long weekends, it is no wonder residents love their island, there is always time to enjoy the beach with family and friends.   Just like in the US, banks and government agencies are closed during observed holidays.
