Yes, that is the official day but will they change it to Monday or Friday to make a bridge weekend.

No.  16 de Septiembre is like US holidays; while many become Monday Holidays, those with specific celebratory dates, do not.  I.e., the 4th of July, Veterans Day (the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year).  I'm sure Canada and other countries have similar holiday schemes, where some are Mondays and others are set in stone.

  • January 1 - New Year's Day (Año Nuevo)
  • First Monday in February - Constitution Day (Día de la Constitución). Originally observed on February 5, now observed on the first Monday in February.
  • Third Monday in March - Birthday of Benito Juarez (President of Mexico from 1858 to 1872). His birthday was March 21, 1806, but the holiday is observed every year on the third Monday in March.
  • May 1 - Labor Day (Dia del Trabajo). Worker marches and demonstrations in cities across the country can create traffic jams and generally slow things down..
  • September 16 - Mexican Independence Day (Día de la Independencia)
  • Third Monday in November - Revolution Day (Día de la Revolución). The Mexican Revolution began on November 20, 1910, but the revolution is commemorated every year on the third Monday in November.
  • December 25 - Christmas Day (Navidad)

"Goodbye to long weekends: AMLO announces reform so that historical dates are celebrated on their date.

By Political Animal 

February 5, 2020

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced this Wednesday that he will propose reforms so that from the next school year the holidays are commemorated on their day and thus end the long weekend holiday.

López Obrador explained that the objective is to recover the historical memory of the country and said he is aware that the issue will generate controversy.

"At the end of the current school year, I am going to propose reforms to return to the historical dates, so that the day on which a historical date is commemorated, of course the most important, the transcendent, is a holiday," he said in a morning conference.

He anticipated that some dates that would be holidays on the same day and would not be changed to Monday as is currently done would be the commemoration of Independence, on November 20, which is the Anniversary of the Revolution, and on February 5.

“It is unfortunate that in recent times these civic, historical dates have been forgotten. The children talk about long weekends, but not why they do not attend school, on a Friday or Monday, it turns out that today, February 5, nobody remembers that the Constitution was promulgated. For us it is a great event of historical relevance, "he said."

The current school year started on August 18th.

So that may be in effect now.

Our gardener reported that at last years "El Grito", on the sixteenth, in Ixtlahuacan, he only heard one gunshot. 

Still lots of pistole shootings in Jocotepec. Just a warning to newcomers to be not afraid if they hear gunfire as well as fireworks. It is a time of celebration and nationalism. Best to stay away, unless you share the same sentiments.
