The government of Cape Verde has, as per custom, declared 2016-2017 year-end one off full day public sector holidays in Cape Verde (tolerância de ponto) on Monday, December 26, 2016, and Monday, January 2017, both dates for the full day.
The aforementioned announcement is based on the fact that the upcoming Christmas and New Year public holidays of Cape Verde both fall on a Sunday ("visto que os feriados do Natal (25 de Dezembro) e da passagem de Ano (1 de Janeiro) calham ambos a um domingo").
Similar, year-end public holidays are routinely declared in Cape Verde (2015-12-21, 2014-12-14, 2010-12-08, 2009-12-14, 2008-12-19, 2006-12-15, 2005-12-12, 2004-12-13), though they are often limited to the afternoon.
