In a break with his predecessor's frequent declaration of Football non-working public holidays, Honduras' new President, Juan Orlando Hernández, has announced that there would be no one-off non-working public holidays in Honduras, neither on June 20 nor on June 25, and that focus should be on work ("trabajo y más trabajo").

Last year (15-Oct-2013), following Honduras' qualification for the current World Cup, Honduras' President, Porfirio Lobo, had declared tomorrow, Wednesday, October 16, 2013, as another one-off non-working public holiday.

Earlier that year (24-Sep-2013), following the requests of Honduras' business and football associations, Honduras' President, Porfirio Lobo, had already moved the date of the October 3, Día del Soldado, annual non-working public holiday to Friday, October 11, 2013, to coincide with the upcoming football game between Honduras and Costa Rica.

Such tinkering with Honduras' public holidays to adapt to the schedule of football games is not uncommon.

Earlier that same year (01-Feb-2013), President, Porfirio Lobo, declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Honduras on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, on the date of a US-Honduras football game.

The previous fall (06-Oct-2012), the same President Porfirio Lobo had moved the Día de la Raza public holiday from Monday, October 15, 2012, to Tuesday, October 16, 2012, to make it coincide with the Honduras qualification match against Canada.
