Venezuela's president, Nicolás Maduro, has issued a decree declaring afternoon, half-day public sector holidays in Venezuela, from December 20, 2017, until Sunday, January 7, 2018, inclusively.

The aforementioned declaration of afternoon, half-day public sector holidays in Venezuela, from December 21, 2017, until Sunday, January 7, 2018, inclusively, was made to give time with their families to the civil servants of Venezuela ("Voy a decretar un horario especial de trabajo navideño a partir de mañana 20 de diciembre. Los trabajadores trabajarán su horario hasta la 1.00 de la tarde desde el 20 de diciembre al 8 de enero para que tenga sus tardes y noches navideñas en familia, en comunidad") and is slightly reminiscent of the declaration of a string of public sector holidays in the spring of last year (2016-05-09, 2016-04-29, 2016-04-26, 2016-03-13, 2016-03-16 and 2016-03-19).
