EDSA anniversary special holiday for schools

Iloilo City (18 February) -- All schools in the country will have no classes on February 22, 2010, as it will be a special holiday in commemoration of the EDSA Revolution Anniversary.

Although the celebration actually falls on February 25, Proclamation No. 1841 issued by Malacanang provides that the holiday is moved to the nearest Monday based on Republic Act No. 9492.

The law, which was enacted on July 24, 2007, provides that holidays, except those which are religious in nature, are moved to the nearest Monday unless otherwise modified by law, order or proclamation.

Since the holiday only covers schools, Feb. 22 shall be a regular working day for government and private offices.

The EDSA anniversary is the only special holiday declared by Malacanang for this year under Proclamation 1841, which declares the regular holidays, special non-working days, and special holidays for the year 2010.

The proclamation further states that the EDSA People Power Revolution of 1986, which restored and ushered political, social and economic reforms in the country, serves as an inspiration to Filipinos everywhere as a nation and as a people. (PIA 6) [top]
