Most civil servants have been told they take paid leave this coming Tuesday to celebrate Carnival

The decision was made by the government, which said that despite the day not being an official holiday, it has become customary for Portuguese to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.

Civil servants who are unable to take the day off due to work commitments, will be given a credit, allowing them to take a day of leave in the future.
