The National Congress of Honduras has approved the further modification of the dates of the upcoming Semana Morazánica public holidays, due to the arrival of tropical storm Eta in Honduras, leaving it up the the executive branch to specify the new public holidays dates, at a later time ("Las fechas posteriores de la “Semana Morazánica” los determinará el Poder Ejecutivo en Consejo de Ministros").

Earlier this week (2020-11-02), Honduras' Ministry of the Interior, Decentralization and Human Rights, announced that the upcoming Semana Morazánica annual public holidays of Honduras would be moved from November 4-7, 2020, to the following week, November 11-14, 2020.

The 2020 Semana Morazánica public holidays of Honduras were already moved once from their usual date in October to the first week of November 2020, a change which was officialized in the Decreto No.126-2020 (2020-09-17, 2020-09-12 and 2020-09-10).

Historically, the 3 annual October public holidays of Honduras, on October 3, 12 and 21, were often tinkered with (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), and, 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), put an end to the annual uncertainty by moving all 3 of Honduras' annual October non-working public holidays to the last week of October. A year later, they were moved from the last week of October to the beginning of October (2015-08-14, 2015-08-05, 2015-12-12 and 2015-07-01).
