President Benigno Aquino declared September 25, 2015 as a regular holiday nationwide in observance of Eid'l Adha via Proclamation No. 1128. September 25 falls on a Friday, meaning Filipinos will have a long weekend next week.
Eid’l Adha is one of the two greatest feasts of Islam; the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) recommends that the observance of Eid’l Adha in the Philippines be on 25 September 2015 based on the Islamic Calendar and the declaration made by Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority, thereby amending its earlier recommendation to observe the occasion on 24 September 2015.
