Palace declares Oct. 24 as regular holiday in observance of Feast of Ramadhan

In order to bring to the fore of national consciousness the religious and cultural significance of the Eid’l Fitr, the Muslim Feast of Ramadhan, Malacanang has declared Tuesday, Oct. 24, as a regular holiday nationwide.

In Proclamation 1155 which Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita signed today, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo cited the need to promote cultural understanding and integration.

The declaration, Ermita said, would give the entire Filipino nation the full opportunity to join their Muslim brothers and sisters in the observance and celebration of Eid'l Fitr.

The main date for this year’s celebration of Ramadhan has been determined to fall on Oct. 24.

Republic Act No. 9177 declared Eid’l Fitr as a regular holiday throughout the country.

Ramadhan is celebrated by the Muslim world for three days after the end of the month of fasting.
