Honduras' Legislative Assembly (Congreso Nacional) has indicated that it will approve last month's 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 (the anniversary of the discovery of the Vigin of Suyapa, Honduras' patron saint).
The aforementioned announcement, made by the Secretarνa de la Presidencia, follows last month's (04-Feb-2012), request by the President of Honduras, Porfirio Lobo Sosa, who had asked Honduras' Congreso Nacional) to declare February 3 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Honduras.
The last time a public holiday was added to the official list of annual public holidays in Honduras was a decade ago (05-Dec-2001) when President Rafael Pineda Ponce, signed Decree 199-2001, which restored 3 of the 4 public holidays which had earlier been canceled as a means of rebuilding the economy shattered by Hurricane Mitch (21-Dec-1998).
