The majority of public holidays in Honduras are based on the country’s predominant Roman Catholic religion, as well as nation-wide political and cultural observances. Public holidays include New Year’s Day and the Christian Easter Holy Week beginning with Maundy Thursday, the first day of Lent. Christian Holy Week typically lasts for three of four days, concluding on Easter Sunday. Some employers allow Easter Monday as a paid holiday.
