MANILA -- Malacañang has declared October 31 as a nationwide non-working holiday.

Proclamation 265 signed by the President Benigno Aquino III Monday said the holiday was declared to give longer time for the country to observe All Saints' Day (November 1), which falls on a Tuesday this year.

“To give full opportunity to our people to properly observe the day with all its religious fervor, which invariably requires them to travel to and from different regions of the country. Monday, 31 October 2011, may be declared as a special (non-working holiday) without detriment to public interest,” the proclamation read. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
