President Benigno S. Aquino III declares July 29, 2014 as Regular National Holiday in honor of our Muslim brother’s celebration of EID’L FITR (FEAST OF RAMADHAN).

Under Proclamation No. 826, the President in reference to Republic Act No. 9177 declared Eid;l Firt or the end of the month of Ramadan as regular holiday throughout the country. This is to promote cultural understanding and integration among Filipinos both Muslim and non-Muslims. It also gives the entire nation the opportunity to join our Muslim bothers and sisters in theor observation of their holy tradition.

Here’s the copy of the Proclamation signed by the President though the Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa.
