The End of Ramadan

Eid-il-Fitr as known to the the Christian majority and other non-Muslims as "Wakas ng Ramadan" or End of Ramadan. It has been recognized by the Filipino Government as a regular holiday by virtue of Republic Act No. 9177 signed into law last Nov. 13, 2002. The law was enacted in deference to the Muslim-Filipino community and to promote peace among other religions in the Philippines. For this year, September 10 is declared a special non-working holiday by Pres. Aquino in giving tribute to the end of the Ramadan of our Muslim brothers and sisters.

Happy Feast Day!
