The Government of Guam has released its annual official list of non-working public holidays in Guam and public sector holidays in Guam (GovGuam holidays) for the calendar year 2017.

The aforementioned announcement of the list of non-working public holidays in Guam and public sector holidays in Guam (GovGuam holidays), for the calendar year 2017 includes the third Monday of January, added as a new "GovGuam holiday" (public holiday limited to civil servants), in honor of Martin Luther King Jr, almost a decade ago (2008-04-26).

It does, however, continue (2016-01-08, 2015-01-09, 2014-01-10, 2013-01-29 and 2012-01-03) to ignore the House Bill "An Act To Amend §1000 Of Chapter 10 Of Title 1, Guam Code Annotated, Relative To Following The Practice Of The Federal Government For Federal Holidays Falling On Saturdays And Sundays" which was signed into law by the Governor of Guam, a decade ago (2005-01-03 and 2004-12-22).
