MANILA, Sept. 4 — President Benigno S. Aquino III declared Friday, Sept. 10, as a regular holiday throughout the country with the end of Ramadan.

In Proclamation No. 26, the President said since the main date for the celebration of Eid’l Fitr for 2010 has been determined to fall on Sept. 10, the entire Filipino nation “should have the full opportunity to join their Muslim brothers and sisters in observing and celebrating Eid’l Fitr.”

The Proclamation cited its basis for the proclamation as Republic Act 9177 declaring Eid’l Fitr (Feast of Ramadan) as a regular holiday.

Eid’l Fitr is the festival when the Muslims end their holy month of fasting or Ramadhan. (PNA) RMA/PCOO/rsm
