A celebration of certain events is needed, and for that, a declaration of a holiday is important, regardless if it is a regular holiday, or a special holiday for a particular place only.
From a news article posted by The Inquirer, Malacañang has declared that January 17, 23, and 25, 2020, will be a special non-working holiday for certain areas in the country. Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea has signed each of the proclamations by the authority of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The dates and places where the holidays will take effect are the following:
- January 17, 2020 (Friday) – Proclamation No. 884 declares that it will be a special non-working holiday for the residents of Kalibo, Aklan, for them to be able to celebrate the Ati-Atihan Festival
