The executive director of the Tegucigalpa Chamber of Commerce (Cámara de Comercio e Industrias de Tegucigalpa - CCIT), Rafael Medina, has asked the Honduran government to reconsider the grouping of the 3 October public holidays into the so-called "Morazánica Public Holidays", due to the prevailing weather conditions in October in Honduras.
The "Decreto Legislativo No. 75-2014 del 29 de septiembre", published in the Diario Oficial La Gaceta (2014-10-27, 2014-10-02, 2014-09-10 and 2014-09-05), moved of all 3 of Honduras' annual October non-working public holidays to the last week of October.
A year later (2015-12-12 and 2015-07-01), a bill was introduced and passed in Honduras' legislative assembly (2015-08-05), to amend the "Decreto Legislativo No. 75-2014 del 29 de septiembre" and move the 3 annual October public holidays of Honduras from the last week of October to the beginning of October (2015-08-14), due to the rainy season coinciding with the end of October in Honduras, and to give people more time to "recover" financially from these extended holidays before the onset of the Christmas shopping season.
