April 9 Is A Holiday
April 9, 2005 (Saturday) has been declared as a regular non-working holiday throughout the Philippines.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
This declaration is by virtue of Republic Act No. 9177, and is in celebration of this year's Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Courage).
The holiday is not moved to a Friday, because RA No. 9177 does not classify April 9 as a movable date.
For those interested in Philippine history, Major General Edward King, Bataan's commander, surrendered to the Japanese on April 9, 1942.
I wonder how my lolo survived the Death March that followed the fall of Bataan.
