Costa Rica Mulls June 17 Public Holiday

Costa Rica's legislature is to consider a bill by Liberación Nacional MP, Rolando González, which would declare June 17, Costa Rican Father's Day (Día del Padre), as a new annual non-working public holiday in Costa Rica.

If the aforementioned bill to declare June 17 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Costa Rica on account of Costa Rican Father's Day (Día del Padre), were to pass, then it would accompany the similarly-inspired Costa Rican Mother's Day (Día de la Madre) on August 15, which has long been one of Costa Rica's annual non-working public holidays, now observed on a fixed date in August (12-Aug-2015, 12-Aug-2014 and 12-Aug-2013), after being observed on a variable date for a few years as it was one of the Costa Rican annual non-working public holidays covered by the Abel Pacheco administration's 2005 law (17-Mar-2005) which specified that 4 public holidays of Costa Rica would move from mid-week to the following Monday (April 11, July 25, August 15, and October 12), though in the case of Mother's Day, this was later reversed by the Law 8604 of 17 September 2007 which amended article 148, paragraph two of the Labor Code, Law 2 of 26 August 1943 and amendments thereto (05-Oct-2007 and 10-Aug-2007).
