The government of the Philippines has confirmed that, despite many press reports to the contrary, tomorrow's EDSA Special Holiday was restricted to schools only, and that Monday, February 25, 2013, would therefore be a regular working day in the Philippines.

Last summer (2012-09-01), the government of the Philippines had gazetted the Proclamation No. 459, s. 2012, signed by President Benigno Aquino III, and which listed the special and regular non-working public holidays in the Philippines for the calendar year 2013.
