The Governor of Guam, Eddie Calvo, has once again declared the Friday after the upcoming Thanksgiving non-working public holiday of Guam, Friday, November 24, 2017, as a one-off GovGuam public sector holiday in Guam.
As per the aforementioned Executive Order, the Friday after the upcoming Thanksgiving non-working public holiday of Guam was granted to Guam public servants to "to use the holiday to spend time with their families, begin your holiday shopping and shop local", and is in addition to the official list of non-working public holidays in Guam for the calendar year 2017 as released earlier this year (2017-01-22).
Last year (2016-11-22), Governor Calvo had announced that he would not be declaring Friday, November 25, 2016, the day after the upcoming Thanksgiving non-working public holiday of Guam, as another one-off GovGuam public sector holiday in Guam, as was done in many of the preceding years, when a similar declaration of Friday, November 28, 2014, as a one-off GovGuam public sector holiday in Guam was made to allow civil servants "to rest and re-energize") (2014-11-21), and a few years before (2011-11-22), the Governor Calvo, had similarly declared Friday, November 25, 2011, the day after Thanksgiving, as a GovGuam public sector holiday granted for public servants to "Rest, take a break and re-energize" after a difficult year marked by "suspension of pay raises and increments".
