Honduras Suyapa Public Holiday February 3
 
(Posted on Thursday, February 2, 2017)

Honduras' Presidency has once again issued an executive decree declaring Friday, February 3, 2017, a one-off public sector holiday, on the occasion of the "Day of the Virgin of Suyapa", the patron saint of Honduras.

However, contrary to recent years (02-Feb-2016, 01-Feb-2015 and 02-Feb-2010), the public sector will be off the entire day of Friday, February 3, 2017, instead of only for the afternoon, as was the case on previous occasions.

February 3 almost became an annual full-day, nationwide, non-working public holidays in Honduras, a few years ago (08-Mar-2012), when Honduras' Legislative Assembly (Congreso Nacional) indicated that it would approve a presidential request that February 3 be declared a new annual non-working public holiday in Honduras to coincide with the Aniversario del Hallazgo de la Virgen de Suyapa, but by the time it was gazetted, the February 3 public holiday of Honduras had been reduced in scope to a mere observance (25-Jan-2013 and 14-Oct-2012).
