Costa Rica's Minister of Labour has once again confirmed that the upcoming día de la Anexión del Partido de Nicoya non-working public holiday would be observed on Monday, July 25, 2016, as per the amended public holidays legislation of Costa Rica.
A decade ago (2009-06-26, 2009-06-19 and 2008-11-29), Costa Rica's Legislative Assembly passed a bill fixing the date of the observance of the Guanacaste Annexation public holiday to July 25, regardless of the weekday on which July 25 occurs (2016-07-22, 2013-07-22 and 2012-07-24), thus further unraveling the Abel Pacheco administration's 2005 law (2005-03-17) which specified that 4 public holidays would move from mid-week to the following Monday (April 11, July 25, August 15, and October 12).
In the subsequent years, the August 15 public holiday which was reset to a fixed date non-working public holiday (2007-10-05 and 2007-08-10), followed a couple of years later by the July 25 public holiday which was reset to a fixed date non-working public holiday (2009-06-26, 2008-11-29, 2009-06-19), followed a year later by the April 11 public holiday which was reset to a fixed date non-working public holiday (2010-10-06), now leaving only one of the original 4 moving public holidays; October 12.
