November 7 is declared a Regular Holiday




Just a week after the October 28 to November 1 break, comes another long holiday weekend as November 7, 2011 a Monday is declared a regular holiday in the Philippines.

Malacanang posted the news via Official Gazette. The post states that PNoy signed Proclamation No. 276 declaring November 7, a holiday in celebration of Eidul Adha, one of the two greatest feasts of Islam.

According to the proclamation, the exact date of Eidul Adha was on November 6, 2011 but National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) recommended that the observance of Eidul Adha be on November 7, 2011 and the Eidul Adha prayer be held on November 6, 2011.

I am happy and will not complain about this holiday 🙂 . Any long weekend holiday is always a welcome break for me 🙂
