Is November 2 a Holiday? (Non-Working) Malacanang Says “No”

When in Manila, we will be experiencing a different November 2 this year. Malacanang recently announced that November 2, 2011 (All Souls Day) will be a “regular working holiday” as opposed to the usual non-working holidays we’ve had the past few years. During President Gloria Macapagal’s term as president, November 2 was a non-working holiday as part of the “holiday economics“.

Executive Secretary Paquito “Jojo” Ochoa said that November 2, 2011 has not been declared as a non-working holiday. “The President did not sign any proclamation,” Ochoa said.

So better do your yearly cemetery visits over the weekend (before November 2 of course lol). Or if you’re planning to spend “All Saints Day” at your province, have your leave scheduled earlier for you to make the most out of your vacation.
