Proclamation 154

We have received an email from the Human Resource Department this morning announcing a special non-working holiday on June 20, 2011 per Proclamation No. 154 released by Malacanang. I was wondering what the holiday is all about, I do know that June 19 is our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal's birth anniversary, and also his birth date is never a national holiday.

To satisfy my curiosity I searched the internet for an answer (yeah, yah, I hadn't watch television lately, huh!).

Proclamation 154 is indeed proclaiming June 20, 2011 instead of June 19, 2011 which falls on a Sunday as a national holiday to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of our national hero.

Hmmmm.. President Pnoy had agreed to moved a special holiday that falls on weekends to nearest working day, huh, interesting.. lol

Anyways, thank you Mr. President for the holiday proclamation. winks*
