    TUESDAY, Nov. 1, and Friday, Nov. 4, are public holidays the better to observe the traditional rituals of All Saints Day, Malacañang declared Tuesday.

    Earlier, the Palace announced that Monday, Oct. 31, was a nonworking holiday.

    But Wednesday, Nov. 2, and Thursday, Nov. 3, are regular working days, according to Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita.

    Asked why Friday, Nov. 4, is a holiday, Ermita said that it was so Filipinos would have a longer weekend.

    For the rest of the year, the following are nonworking holidays as contained in Proclamation Order No. 839 which was signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo last May but reissued by the Palace Tuesday: Nov. 28 and Dec. 26, the Monday following Christmas Day, but Bonifacio Day on Nov. 30 was designated a working day.

    mukhang inurong yung ramadan to friday para long weekend.

    Wala na yung Ramadan?

    there was a declaration before sa re nov 3 as end-of-ramadan holiday. what happened?

    Mukhang unfair yata sa mga Muslim brothers natin. Kung yung Ramadan naiurong eh di iurong na rin ang Christmas sa Friday or Monday para long weekend din.

    parang mas logical yata na nov 2 ang gawing holiday "so Filipinos would have a longer weekend", lalo na yong umuuwi ng malalayong probinsya. di ko gets pag-iisip nila..

    baka parang yong last na holiday announcement na naman yan.... para silang mga bagyo, pabago-bago ang isip.
