Some Filipinos might still get confused if October 31, 2019 (Thursday) is a non-working holiday or not.

KAMI learned that it has not been declared a holiday by President Rodrigo Duterte as of posting time.

In a report by the Philippine Star (author Rosette Adel), President Duterte declared November 1, 2019 (Friday) as a holiday through Proclamation No. 555 in observance of the All Saints’ Day.

It was also stated in the proclamation that November 2, 2019 (Saturday) is an “additional special (non-working) day.”

However, this may still change. Last year, Malacañang suspended the work in all government offices on the afternoon of October 31 to allow them to travel for the “Undas” break.

As reported by the Inquirer (author Daphne Galvez), the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has granted 885 special permits to public utility buses (PUBs) to cater to many passengers that will be traveling during the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.
