Last Nov. 15, President Rodrigo Duterte signed Proclamation No. 845 declaring the regular holidays and special non-working days for 2020.
There are a total of 19 holidays for next year, with 10 declared as regular holidays and seven announced as special non-working holidays. Additional two special non-working days were also included: Nov. 2 (All Souls’ Day) and Dec. 24 (Christmas Eve).
The national holidays for the observance of the Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha will be issued by the Malacañang after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined “in accordance with the Islamic calendar or the lunar calendar.”
