This year’s observance of the Bonifacio Day, a regular holiday nationwide, remains on Friday, November 30, 2007.

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita by order of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on August 6, 2007 per Presidential Proclamation No. 1353 declared Friday, November 30, a regular holiday throughout the country in observance of Bonifacio Day.

Philippine Information Agency Assistant Director General for Visayas Atty. Janet C. Mesa clarified in a radio interview that based on Proclamation No. 1353 the observance of Bonifacio Day need not be moved to the nearest Monday as provided under Republic Act No. 9492 because the day falls already on a Friday.

R.A. No. 9492 dated July 24, 2007, entitled “An Act Rationalizing the Celebration of National Holidays Amending for the Purpose Section 26, Chapter 7, Book 1 of Executive Order No. 292, as amended, otherwise known as The Administrative code of 1987″, was issued to declare certain days (specific or movable) as special or regular holiday.

Also, based on Proclamation No. 1353, Rizal Day on December 30, 2007, a regular holiday in the country need not be moved to the nearest Monday because December 31, 2007 is already a special non-working holiday per RA 9492.

December 31, being the last day of the year is listed under special holidays in RA 9492.

Mesa said with Friday, November 30, a regular holiday the public could look forward for another longer weekend. Source
