The President of Paraguay, Horacio Cartes, has signed the "Decreto número 2808" which declares 2 year-end one-off non-working public holidays in Paraguay for the public sector ("para los funcionarios de la administración pública y las entidades descentralizadas").
The aforementioned declaration of the afternoon of December 24, and the entire day of December 31, 2014, as one off public sector holidays ("declara asueto el día 24 de diciembre próximo a partir de las 12:00, y el 31 de diciembre durante todo el día") is in addition to the list of annual non-working public holiday in Paraguay for the calendar year 2014 as it was announced last January (2014-01-10).
Paraguay's public servants have often benefited from one-off public holidays in the past, most commonly for Holy Wednesday (2014-04-11, 2013-03-16, 2012-04-03, 2011-04-18, 2010-03-30 and 2009-04-06), and for the year-end (2012-12-07, 2011-12-19, 2010-12-23 and 2009-12-23).
