MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte’s Proclamation No. 50 did not include November 2, 2017 as special (non-working) holiday throughout the country but some local government units and schools declared suspension of classes and work in observance of All Souls‘ Day.
While October 31 and November 1 were declared holidays, at least two (2) LGUs said the additional holiday on November 2 will give more time in observing the tradition. Filipino families commemorate and pay homage to the deceased family members on All Souls’ Day.
