Nov. 29 a holiday – Malacanang
Malacañang on Thursday declared that November 29 will be a regular non-working holiday in commemoration of Bonifacio Day.
The announcement was made by Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte in a text message to reporters.
The holiday was also announced on the government’s Twitter account.
Bonifacio Day actually falls on November 30.
However, Proclamation 1841, issued in July 2009, moves the celebration of the said holiday to the nearest Monday.
A regular holiday means it is a “non-working” day. Special holidays, such as the Eid’l Adha, or the Islam feast of sacrifice, on November 16 this year, can also be declared as non-working days.
