President Glora Macapagal Arroyo has signed last week Proclamation No. 1808-A, amending the Proc 1808, originally signed early this year.
The new amendment states that the feast of Eid’l Adha will only be observed in Autonomous Regoin of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and not in the entire country. This means, outside ARMM, regular work schedule will be followed.
Just today, Philippine president, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has declared the November 27-28 as Public Holidays in the observance of the Eidl Adha or the Feast of the Sacrifice which is observed by the Muslim Community.
This is the first time that the entire Filipino nation will be observing this holiday, and the second Muslim holiday to be observed nationally. The first Muslim holiday being observed is the Eid’l Fitr of the Festival of Breaking the Feast.
The new holiday will also make the last week of November as a four-day work break as November 30 (monday) will also be a Holiday (Bonifacio Day)
