President Ferdinand Marcos has declared next year’s regular holidays and special non-working days but excluded from declaring the commemoration of the EDSA People Power Revolution as a holiday.

Mr. Marcos approved Proclamation No. 368, which Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin signed on October 11, stating the Department of Labor and Employment must implement the guidelines for the proclamation.

Excluded from the list is the observance of the 38th EDSA People Power Anniversary on February 25 next year, which falls on a Sunday.

Malacañang clarified that it respects the observance of EDSA anniversary but said that since it falls on a Sunday or the usual rest day for workers, it would have a minimal socio-economic impact to declare the day as a special non-working day.

Listed under regular holidays are the following:

Jan. 1 – New Year’s Day

March 28 – Maundy Thursday

March 29 – Good Friday

April 9 – Araw ng Kagitingan

May 1 – Labor Day

June 12 – Independence Day

Aug. 26 – National Heroes Day (Last Monday of August)

Nov. 30 – Bonifacio Day

Dec. 25 – Christmas Day

Dec. 30 – Rizal Day

Meanwhile,  the following were announced as special non-working days for 2024:

Aug. 21 – Ninoy Aquino Day

Nov. 1 – All Saints’ Day

Dec. 8 – Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary

Dec. 31 – Last Day of the Year

Additional special (non-working) days:

Feb. 10 – Chinese New Year

March 30 – Black Saturday

Nov. 2 – All Souls’ Day

Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve

Meanwhile, the announcement for the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha will be issued once the Islamic holidays’ approximate dates have been determined per the Islamic calendar.

“With this, the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos is advised, at the appropriate time, to recommend to the Office of the President (OP) the actual dates on which Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha holidays will respectively fall,” the Palace said.
