Argentina's President, Cristina Kirchner, has signed executive decree 1923/2010 declaring public sector holidays on December 23, 24, 30, and 31, 2010.

The aforementioned public sector holidays on December 23 and 30 are half-day public holidays, beginning at noon, local time, while December 24 and 31 are full-day public sector holidays.

The decree specifically stipulates that it does not apply to the banking and financial sectors ("no alcanza a las instituciones bancarias y entidades financieras"). However, the banking sector will still benefit from a half-day bank holiday on the afternoon of December 24 and 31, as usual.
