Honduras' Legislative Assembly (Congreso Nacional) has passed a legislative decree ("decreto legislativo nϊmero 188-2012, del 12 de octubre de 2012") declaring 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).

Last spring (08-Mar-2012), Honduras' Legislative Assembly (Congreso Nacional) had indicated that it would approve the previous month's presidential request (04-Feb-2012) 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 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).
