PHILIPPINE President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. has declared April 10, Wednesday a holiday in observance of Eid’l Fitr or the Feast of Ramadhan. 

The regular holiday would “bring the religious and cultural significance of Eid’l Fitr to the fore of national consciousness,” according to Proclamation 514 signed by Executive Secretary Lucas P. Bersamin on April 4.

It would also “allow the entire Filipino nation to join their Muslim brothers and sisters in peace and harmony.”

April 9 on Tuesday is also a holiday in observance of the Day of Valor. — KATA
