Macau's Chief Executive has declared a one-off, half-day, public holiday for the afternoon of Friday, December 31, 2010.
This announcement, following a trend started a couple of years ago (2006-07-14, 2007-03-13, and 2008-04-23), was made under the purview of the "Decree Law No. 60/2000 on Public Holidays", and is presumably meant to compensate the fact that the New Year's Day public holiday for 2011, falls on a weekend.
