Plan your vacation now! yipee!
source: proclamation 1841
The first holiday would be tomorrow. The government declared tomorrow, Sept 7, a Non working holiday because it would be the burial of Eraño Manalo, the head of the politically influential, vernacular-speaking, and home-grown Iglesia ni Cristo, who died last August 31.
Another Holiday would be on Sept 21, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, and would be highlighted by the celebration of Eid’l Fitr.
So two long, weekend for this September. mark your calendars, and prepare for a nice family event. It would be a great time to bond with your family, especially if the parents are working like me and my husband.
