The government of Portugal, in a decree signed by the Portuguese Minister for Foreign Affairs, on behalf of the Prime Minister, António Costa, has declared a national public sector holiday (tolerância de ponto) on Tuesday, December 26, 2017.

The aforementioned declaration of Tuesday, December 26, 2017, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Portugal ("É concedida tolerância de ponto aos trabalhadores que exercem funções públicas nos serviços da administração direta do Estado, sejam eles centrais ou desconcentrados, e nos institutos públicos no próximo dia 26 de dezembro de 2017") is explained as being in line with tradition ("tradicional a deslocação de muitas pessoas para fora dos seus locais de residência no período natalício tendo em vista a realização de reuniões familiares").

In any event the declaration of Tuesday, December 26, 2017, as a public sector holiday in Portugal, follows last spring's declaration of Friday, May 12, 2017, also as a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Portugal, to coincide with the visit of Pope Francis to Portugal that same month (01-May-2017), and last year's reinstatement (19-Mar-2016, 08-Jan-2016, 03-Jan-2016, 19-Dec-2015 and 11-Nov-2015) of the 4 annual public holidays of Portugal that had been canceled a few years before (01-Aug-2012, 09-May-2012, 14-Nov-2011, 12-Mar-2012, 18-Jan-2012, 01-Dec-2011, 03-Jul-2011 and 15-Oct-2011).
