The secretaría de Derechos Humanos, Justicia, Gobernación y Descentralización of Honduras, has once again approved the declaration of the entire upcoming Holy Week (April 10-16, 2017) as additional non-working public holidays for Honduras' public sector employees.

The aforementioned announcement ("se concede asueto a cuenta de vacaciones del período 2017 los días lunes 10, martes 11 y miércoles 12 de abril"), is in line with previous years, when the annual Easter public holidays were often extended for Honduras' public sector, to last for the entire full Holy Week (2016-03-16, 2015-03-21, 2012-03-14, 2011-04-12, 2010-03-10, 2009-04-03, 2008-03-15, 2007-03-28, and 2006-04-04) as is also often done in neighboring Nicaragua (2017-04-06, 2016-03-15, 2014-04-07, 2013-03-05, 2012-03-24, 2011-04-08, 2010-03-17, 2009-03-20, and 2008-03-10) and, to a lesser extent, Costa Rica (2017-03-15, 2010-03-11 and 2009-03-19).

For its part, last month (2017-03-21), the Honduran association of private enterprises (Cohep) announced much shorter dates of public holidays in Honduras on account of the upcoming Semana Santa (Holy Week).
