PIA Press Release
2008/11/19

December 1 is special non-working day

Iloilo City (19 November) -- Filipino families can look forward to a longer week-end at the end of the month as December 1, 2008, a Monday, was declared a special non-working holiday nationwide.

Pursuant to Proclamation No. 1463, December 1, 2008 was declared as non-working holiday being a Monday, nearest to November 30, Bonifacio Day which falls on a Sunday this year.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed Proclamation No. 1463 last February 18, 2008, declaring the regular and special non working holidays for this year as mandated by Republic Act No. 9492 which rationalized the celebration of the country's holidays.

RA No. 9492 provides that holidays, except those which are religious in nature, moved to the nearest Monday unless otherwise modified by law, order or proclamation.

Aside from the said date, the President also declared December 26 (Friday) and 29 (Monday) as additional special non-working holidays to enable Filipinos to have a more meaningful observance of Christmas and New Year to strengthen their ties with one another. The move is also in line with the President's "holiday economics".

Other holidays listed in Proclamation 1463 for the remainder of 2008 are December 25 (Thursday)which is Christmas Day and December 30 (Tuesday), Rizal Day as regular holidays and December 31 (Wednesday) which is the last day of the year as special non-working day. (PIA) [top]
