Argentina's Executive has submitted to Argentina's Lower House (Cámara de Diputados), a bill which would declare Friday, November 30, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina's capital, on account of the G20 summit being held in Buenos Aires' region.
Under the preceding Kirchner administration, one-off non-working public holidays ("sólo sería feriado en el año XXXX en forma excepcional") became quite common, as Monday, May 24, 2010, was declared a one-off (por única vez) non-working public holiday to coincide with Argentina's bicentennial (2010-05-04, 2010-03-31, 2010-03-11, 2010-01-25), Monday, February 27, 2012, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the bicentennial of the creation and first pledge of allegiance to the national flag (2011-12-23, 2011-12-01, 2011-07-27), Monday, September 24, 2012, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Tucumán (2012-09-11, 2012-03-26, 2012-05-25, 2012-06-29, 2012-08-10, 2012-09-06), Monday, January 31, 2013, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the initial meeting of the Argentine Constituting Assembly (2013-01-15, 2012-12-20 and 2012-12-14, 2012-04-01, 2012-11-04), and Wednesday, February 20, 2013, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the "Día de la Batalla de Salta" (2015-06-05, 2013-01-09, 2012-11-30, 2012-11-22, 2012-04-01). However, ever since the start of the Macri administration (2015-12-13), such initiatives have dwindled (2017-08-05).
