MANILA, Philippines - In response to calls from the business sector for an early announcement of the schedule of holidays, President Arroyo has released presidential proclamation declaring all the holidays for 2010.

The list of regular holidays for 2010 is as follows:

Jan. 1, New Year’s Day; April 1, Maundy Thursday; April 9, Araw ng Kagitingan; May 1, Labor Day; June 14, Independence Day; Aug. 30, National Heroes Day; Nov. 29, Bonifacio Day; Dec. 25, Christmas Day; and Dec. 27, Rizal Day.

The special non-working holidays are Aug. 23, Ninoy Aquino Day; Nov. 1, All Saints’ Day; and Dec. 31, the last day of the year.

 

The President, “in order to foster closer family ties and enable our countrymen to observe Christmas more meaningfully,” added Dec. 24 as a special non-working day.

 

“This will also serve to strengthen family relationships by providing a longer weekend and renewing ties for a longer period of time as well as promote domestic tourism,” the proclamation stated.

 

A special holiday, which applies only to schools, was also included in the proclamation, namely Feb. 22 for the celebration of the EDSA People Power Revolution.


In the case of the Islamic holidays Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha, separate proclamations would be issued once the approximate dates have been determined in accordance with the Islamic calendar (Hijra), the lunar calendar or upon Islamic calculations.

These holidays would be celebrated as regional holidays in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
