The Government of Honduras has gazetted the Decreto No.126-2020, which transfers the upcoming Morazánica public holidays from October 2020, to the first week of November 2020 ("Con fines turísticos y únicamente durante el año 2020, los feriados correspondientes a las festividades cívicas de los días 3, 12 y 21 de Octubre, se trasladan a partir del primer Miércoles del mes de Noviembre del año 2020, para los empleados públicos; y, para los empleados del sector privado dichos feriados iniciarán desde el primer Miércoles de Noviembre a las doce meridiano (12:00 M.), hasta el Sábado a las doce meridiano (12:00 M.).").

Today's gazetted decree officially enshrines last month's decision by the National Congress of Honduras to transfer the upcoming Morazánica public holidays from October 2020, to the first week of November 2020 (2020-09-17, 2020-09-12 and 2020-09-10).

Before 2014, Honduras had 3 annual October non-working public holidays, on the 3rd, the 12th and the 21st, and over the years, the government of Honduras often tinkered with these 3 annual non-working public holidays (2013-10-03, 2013-09-24, 2012-10-06, 2012-10-01, 2011-09-30, 2003-04-09, 2008-10-25, 2007-10-03, 2006-10-02, and 2005-09-30).

Then, in 2014, the "Decreto Legislativo No. 75-2014 del 29 de septiembre" (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, and a year later (2015-08-14, 2015-08-05, 2015-12-12 and 2015-07-01), they were moved from the last week of October to the beginning of October.
