The Ministry of Planning and Administration of the government of Curaçao has announced that it had declared Tuesday, December 24, and Tuesday, December 31, 2019, as one-off public sector holidays in Curaçao.
The aforementioned announcement of 2 one-off public sector holidays in Curaçao, on Tuesday, December 24, and Tuesday, December 31, 2019, thus amends the list of official non-working public holidays in Curaçao for the calendar year 2019, as was released last year by the government of Curaçao (2018-12-10).
Local media quote the Curaçao Ministry of Planning and Administration as trying to downplay the declaration of Tuesday, December 24, and Tuesday, December 31, 2019, as one-off public sector holidays, by stating that "many civil servants take half a day off anyway on those days, so there really is no work going on anyway".
