Philippines President, Rodrigo Duterte, has signed into law Republic Act 10966 which implements the previously-voted House Bill 5241 and Senate Bill 1430, and declares December 8 as a new annual non-working public holiday in the Philippines on account of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

Earlier this year (03-May-2017), The Philippines House of Representatives unanimously approved, in its third and final reading, the House Bill 5241, authored by Majority Leader and Ilocos Norte Rep. Rodolfo C. Fariρas, declaring December 8 of every year a special national non-working public holiday in the Philippines on account of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and it was recently adopted by the Philippines Senate as Senate Bill 1430, and then forwarded to President Duterte for his signature into law (22-Dec-2017).

The aforementioned signature into law of Republic Act 10966 thus amends the previously released (19-Jul-2017) list of official 2018 non-working public holidays in the Philippines (Proclamation No. 269, s. 2017).
