November 7, declared a Philippine holiday

Yesterday, Malacañang declared Nov. 7 as a regular holiday in observance of Eid’l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice, celebrated by Muslims.

Eid al-Adha is celebrated annually on the 10th day of the 12th and the last Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah (?? ?????) of the lunar Islamic calendar.[4] Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. The date is approximately 70 days (2 Months & 10 days) after the end of the month of Ramadan, i.e. Eid-ul-Fitr.

I wish November 2, 3 and 4 were also declared holidays.
