Pinoy Holidays : September 10, 2010 is a Holiday


Malacañang declares Sept 10 as non-working holiday
09/03/2010 | 10:28 AM

Malacañang has declared September 10 a non-working holiday to give way for the celebration for the end of the Muslims' holy month of fasting, the Ramadan.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said President Benigno Simeon Aquino III has signed Proclamation 26, declaring September 10 as a non-working holiday as Muslims celebrate the "Eid ul-Fitr," or the festivities for the end of Ramadan.

"Eid" is an Arabic word meaning "festivity" while "Fiṭr" means "to purify." The holiday is thus a symbol of purification after completing the fasting month.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The Ramadan began on August 11 this year and will end on September 10. — LBG/VVP, GMAnews.TV
