Saints Day of Sant Miquel or Saint Michael Archangel - September 29th

September 29th is the Saints Day of Sant Miquel or Saint Michael, which as the weather is still good, is an excuse for Festa Majors around Catalonia and the Catalan-speaking countries.

According to Christian and Jewish tradition, Sant Miquel is an archangel, who is leader of the celestial army and the prince of angels.

In the Jewish tradition, Miquel is the protector of Israel and the synagogue and in the Christian tradition he is the protector of the church so it is not surprising that he is patron saint of the police.
