I asked a colleague who is married to a Spaniard if there was any kind of holiday in Spain this week. We looked it up and found none, although they do have Dec 6 and Dec 10 off for the National Day and the Feast of Assumption. I asked if they had the same thing as they do in France where, if a holiday is on a Thursday (and some religious ones always are), they can have a bridge (faire le pont) and have the Friday off too (also known as a Mayor's day as they get, or did get, the say so on these things). He said they did and wondered if this was related to the Spanish term "puenting", i.e. bridging. This turned out to be bungee jumping.
In a similar vein, there's a French word relooking which means getting a make-over. They started with "un look" for "a style" and it grew out of that.
