President Noynoy Aquino has signed Proclamation No. 276 making November 7, which falls on a Monday as regular holiday (walang pasok).

The move was in observation of Eid’l Adha, the Muslim celebration commemorating the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma’il) as an act of obedience to God. Earlier, PNoy also declared October 31 a special non-working holiday to give Filipinos a chance to go their respective provinces to honor their dead.
