Philippines Deputy Presidential Spokesperson, Abigail Valte, has announced that President Benigo Simeon Aquino III had declared Monday, November 29, 2010, as a non-working public holiday.

The aforementioned announcement follows last year's Proclamation 1841 (2009-07-22) which declared 10 regular public holidays, four special non-working public holidays and one special public holiday for the calendar year 2010.

However, since his election, President Benigno Aquino (2010-06-17) has announced that he would declare each public holiday on a case-by-case basis (2010-07-12). As such, some of the previously gazetted public holidays were canceled (2010-08-11) while others remained in place (2010-08-13), albeit after a period of uncertainty (2010-08-12).
