Palace declares Sept 12 a national holiday for Eid’l Adha | Long Vacation for Cebuanos #WalangPasok

DAVAO CITY  — Malacañang has officially declared Sept. 12 as a regular holiday throughout the country in observance of the Eid’l Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), one of the two greatest feasts of Islam.
The declaration was contained under Proclamation No. 56, which was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on Sept. 5 prior to his departure for Laos.
The date of this year’s celebration of Eid’l Adha, which falls on a Monday, was based on the recommendations of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF).
Eid’l Adha is the tenth day in the month of Hajj or Islamic Pilgrimage to Mecca “wherein Muslims pay homage to Abraham’s supreme act of sacrifice and signifies mankind’s obedience to God.” (RA 9849).
Eid’l Adha is one of the two Muslim holidays observed in the Philippines–Eid’l Fitr was celebrated on July 6.

Since Sept 12 already declared by the Palace as regular holiday, the City of Cebu and the Province of Cebu with its component cities will likely enjoy a four-day long weekend.
September 9 (Friday) is declared a non-working holiday in honor of the late President Sergio Osmeña, Sr. according to Republic Act No. 6953
