The legislative decree ("decreto legislativo número 188-2012, del 12 de octubre de 2012") declaring a new annual 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), has been officially gazetted (La Gaceta número 33,031 del 22 de enero de 2013).

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).

This was followed, last fall (14-Oct-2012), by Honduras' Congreso Nacional passing the "decreto legislativo número 188-2012, del 12 de octubre de 2012") declaring a new annual holiday in Honduras ("mediante el cual se declara Día Festivo Nacional, en honor a la Virgen de Suyapa el día 03 de febrero de cada año").

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).
