Costa Rica's Minister of Labour, Harold Villegas, has stated that the bill being voted on by the Costa Rica national assembly to declare December 1 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Costa Rica would likely pass, but not in time for this year.

The aforementioned bill 19 230 (Celebración Del 1º De Diciembre Como “Día De La Abolición Del Ejército, Neutralidad En Conflictos Y Promoción De La Paz Entre Las Naciones”) was introduced earlier this summer (2014-07-31) in Costa Rica's Legislative Assembly to declare December 1 as a new annual non-working public holiday to commemorate the centenary of Costa Rica's neutrality.
