Two additional holidays will be declared in the second half of the year in connection with the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha. The dates for the said Islamic feasts, which are both national holidays, will be determined by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos based on the Islamic calendar (Hijra) or the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations.
The anniversary of the 1986 EDSA People Power, which is commemorated every February 25, is a holiday for all schools only. Interestingly, the Chinese New Year is no longer listed as a special non-working holiday for 2013 unlike this year.
