Is August 12 2019 A Holiday?

Eidul Adha is a Muslim celebration that honours the willingness of Ibrahim to obey Allah and also commemorates the end of the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). In 2019, Eidul Adha is expected to fall on Sunday 11 August. However the date will only be confirmed once the National Commission on Muslim Filipino informs the President’s office of the actual day and a proclamation is made.

Based on Department of Education (DepEd) Order No. 007, series of 2019 also known as Deped Calendar for School Year 2019-2020, if Eidul Adha falls on August 12, Filipinos will have two long weekends this month – August 10-12 and August 24-26 for National Heroes' Day weekend. 

Many Filipinos are expecting Monday 12 August to be declared as special non-working holiday. As a matter of fact, there are various posts and claims circulating about this in the internet. 

But for now, it is best for us to wait for the final announcement from the office of the President.
