October 31 - A Special Non-working Holiday

Malacanang has declared October 31 a special non-working day to give Filipinos more travel time during the traditional commemoration of the All Souls and Saints Day.

October 31, Monday, is declared a holiday throughout the country. It is under Proclamation 265 signed by Executive Secretary Pacquito Ochoa,

This is to "give full opportunity to our people to properly observe the day with all its religious commitment which invariably requires them to travel to and from different regions of the country," the proclamation noted.

All Saints Day on November 1, Tuesday, has earlier been declared as special non-working day.
