OCTOBER 15, 2013: A Non-working Holiday


OCTOBER 15, 2013: A Non-working Holiday

Good News to all students and employees out there! 

I know that a lot of you are always on the look out for a possible holiday or time off from your hectic working or class schedules. So, the timely announcement by MalacaƱan Palace declaring a holiday on the 15th of this month is a welcome respite, right?

FEAST OF SACRIFICE or Eid’l Adha will be celebrated on October 15, 2013, Tuesday, a public holiday throughout the country as declared by President Benigno Simeon Aquino, Jr. through Proclamation No. 658

The President based the proclamation on Republic Act No. 9849 which provides that Eidul Adha (Eid’l Adha) be celebrated every year as a special nonworking day.

Eid’l Adha is one of the two greatest feasts of Islam, but the date of the festival is based on the declaration made by Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body.

The other is Eid’l Fitr or the Feast of Breaking the Fast that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Eid’l Adha is the 10th day in the month of Hajj, or the pilgrimage to Mecca, during which Muslims pay homage to Abraham’s supreme act of sacrifice that signifies mankind’s obedience to God.

This year the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos had recommended that the observance of Eid’l Adha be on October 15, “and the Eid’l Adha prayer be performed on the final declaration of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” according to 
MalacaƱan Palace.
