Nicaragua's Ministerio del Trabajo (Mitrab) has declared a general public holiday (para todos los trabajadores del sector público y privado) on Thursday, December 8, 2011, on account of the upcoming Immaculate Conception (celebraciones de La Purísima) public holiday.
Contrary to previous years (2010-12-06, 2010-12-01, 2009-11-21 and 2008-11-06), no bridge public holiday was declared to link the December 8 annual public holiday with the nearest weekend to cater to the population's overwhelming Catholicism ("tomando en cuenta la tradición de la mayoría del pueblo de celebrar La Purísima").
