Paraguay's President, Horacio Cartes, has once again decreed a non-working public sector holiday for Ash Wednesday, Wednesday, March 28, 2018, to let Paraguayan civil servants begin their Holy Week non-working public holidays earlier.

As per the aforementioned Decreto Nº 8712, Paraguay's public servants will be off the entire day of Wednesday, March 28, 2018 ("declaró asueto el día 28 de marzo, Míercoles Santo, para la Administración Pública y Entidades Descentralizadas").

One-off public sector holidays have been common in Paraguay in the past, most commonly for Holy Wednesday (2016-03-18, 2015-03-20, 2014-04-11, 2013-03-16, 2012-04-03, 2011-04-18, 2010-03-30 and 2009-04-06), and for the year-end (2016-12-13, 2014-12-22, 2012-12-07, 2011-12-19, 2010-12-23 and 2009-12-23), though often, under former President Fernando Lugo, only for the afternoon.
