The 28th of February marks Andalusia Day –also cleped Día de Andalucía– which is a public holiday in Andalusia. It celebrates the sovereignty of Andalusia in 1980, following a referendum where the majority of voters were in favor of the autonomy of Andalusia.
The celebrations are rather quiet, for the most part, where many people prefer spending the day relaxing with family or friends. Nonetheless, other people follow a more energetic approach, where they attend private parties with traditional music, dancing, food, and drinks. Moreover, some communal meals are held by boroughs, along with entertainment events.
