The Philippines Senate has, in turn, unanimously approved the bill which would declare September 8 as a new annual special working holiday to commemorate the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Late last year (2018-12-30), the Philippines House of Representatives had similarly approved, on final reading, that same bill declaring September 8 as a new annual special working holiday.

The year before (2017-12-17, 2017-12-22, 2017-05-03), Philippines President, Rodrigo Duterte, signed into law Republic Act 10966 which implements the House Bill 5241 and Senate Bill 1430, declaring December 8 as a new annual non-working public holiday in the Philippines on account of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
