Four years before that (2013-11-19), Monday, November 25, 2013, was declared a one-off non-working public sector holiday.
And four years before that (2009-11-25 and 2009-11-27), the then Honduran government of Roberto Micheletti declared a public sector holiday for Friday afternoon, November 27, 2009, starting at noon local time, as well as the entire day of Monday, November 30, 2009, to enable people who had to go back to their village to vote on Sunday, to return to the cities and resume work on Tuesday morning ("para que puedan viajar a sus ciudades el domingo 24 y así ejercer el sufragio").
