April 23, 2011 (Black Saturday) Special Non Working Holiday

The Malacanang Palace announced that the Black Saturday dated April 23, 2011 will be a special non working day. This is to give the Filipino people throughout the country enough time to give importance to Holy days.

This holiday declaration was in accordance with the previously released Proclamation No. 50 signed by Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino which states that the people must be given uninterrupted opportunity to ponder on the significance of the Holy Week and to properly observe its traditions with religious fervor, without prejudice to public interest.

Black Saturday is a yearly holiday along with the week of remembering God's sacrifices for the forgiveness of sins. Should you want to view the Official list of holidays for 2011.
