Día de la Constitución

govern_balear

Today, Spain celebrates a public holiday, the Día de la Constitución (Constitution Day). In fact, Spain celebrates one of its famous puente, a three day holiday, what with next Monday, December 8th, being the religious holiday of the Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception).

The Spanish Constitution of 1978 is the culmination of the Spanish transition to democracy. Spain’s constitution was approved by the Cortes Generales on October 31st, 1978, and by the Spanish people in a referendum on December 6th, 1978, thirty years ago today, before being promulgated by King Juan Carlos I. on December 27th. The new constitution came into effect on December 29th, the day it was published in the B. O. E. (Official Gazette).

You may remember that, previously Spain had been under the fist of a dictator for a very long time, General Franco, from 1938 to 1975, having previously suffered three years of civil war.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The date: January 11th, 2008. The time was 13:52:57.
