Costa Rica's Cabinet has announced that the Costa Rican public sector and government agencies would benefit from public holidays during the upcoming Christmas holidays, from Saturday, December 22, 2018, until Sunday, January 6, 2019, inclusively.

The extension of the 2018-2019 year-end public sector holidays mirrors that of last Easter (2018-03-16), is a regular occurrence 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 had been observed regularly until 2013 in Costa Rica (2013-03-18, 2012-03-25, 2010-03-11 and 2009-03-19), but was not so observed for the 2 years, until 2 years ago when the practice was started again (2017-03-15 and 2016-02-24).
