Sept. 25 a holiday


President Benigno Aquino 3rd has declared September 25 a regular holiday throughout the country in observance of the Muslim feast, Eid’l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice.

Eid’l Adha is one of the two biggest feasts of Islam, the other being Eid’l Fitr, which is also a regular holiday in the country.

The date of Eid’l Adha is based on the declaration made by Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body. This year, Eid’l Adha falls on a Friday, giving Filipinos another long weekend.
