la festa nazionale

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun la festa nazionale, which means national holiday. In the United States, we have a handful of national holidays, such as Christmas, Memorial Day, Labor Day and a few others. See the noun used below in its context:

Visto che il prossimo lunedì non si lavora perché è festa nazionale, perché non ce ne andiamo in montagna.

Since we are not working next Monday because it is a national holiday, why don’t we take off to the mountains?
