September 10, Friday, a regular holiday

Malacañang has declared September 10, Friday, a regular holiday.

President Benigno Aquino on Friday proclaimed Eidul Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, a holiday.

This makes the next weekend, September 10-12, a 3-day holiday.

Republic Act No. 9177, signed into law in November 2002 during the Arroyo presidency, declares the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar, a national holiday for the observance of Eidul Fitr.

“Eidul Fitr is the first day marking the end of the thirty (30)-day fasting period of Ramadhan,” said RA 9177.

Eidul Fitr day depends on the Islamic calendar.

RA 9177 says “the approximate date of these Islamic holidays may be determined in accordance with the Islamic calendar (Hijra) or the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations, whichever is possible or convenient.”
