Argentina Mulls October 31 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Saturday, August 5, 2017)

A bill has been introduced into Argentina's Lower House (Cámara de Diputados), by MP Marcelo Daletto (UCR), which add a new annual non-working public holiday in Argentina on October 31st, to mark the "Día de las Iglesias Evangélicas".

The impetus for the aforementioned bill to declare October 31st as a new annual non-working public holiday in Argentina is to mark the "Día de las Iglesias Evangélicas", comes from the 500th anniversary of the protestant reformation in 2017, a milestone that was marked in Germany by the extremely rare occurrence of a one-off public holiday (04-Sep-2016, 08-Oct-2015, 16-Sep-2014, 12-Dec-2013, 13-Aug-2013, 04-Jun-2013, 17-May-2013, 15-May-2013, 01-May-2013, 14-Mar-2013, 08-Mar-2013, 25-Jan-2013, 10-Jan-2013, 13-Dec-2012, 04-Nov-2012, 27-Nov-2009, 25-Mar-2009, 01-Nov-2007, 07-Nov-2006).

Neighboring Chile added October 31 as a new annual non-working public holiday in 2008, after a couple of years of seesawing (11-Oct-2008, 20-Sep-2008, 16-Sep-2008, 22-Nov-2007, 01-Nov-2007, 18-Oct-2007, 10-Nov-2006).

Peru also made a half-hearted attempt at declaring October 31st as a new "Día de las Iglesias Evangélicas" public holiday in Peru (11-Nov-2008), but nothing came of it.
