27 Jul 2009 is a Non-Working Holiday! (NOT)

UPDATE: So, someone knocked the head of someone in the Palace. They just released a clarification that 27 July 2009 is a WORKING HOLIDAY. In what part of this planet had you heard of a “working” holiday. Read all BS stuff here.

You read it right! On the last Monday of this month, the 27th, aside from the President (your’s not mine) will give her last SONA (hopefully), it will also coincide with the founding anniversary of the Iglesia ni Cristo. Not much fun fare there was, during our celebration of the country’s independence this year, it was signed into law as RA 9645 declaring the 27th of every July thereafter a non-working holiday.

As of this posting, I cannot locate a copy of the Republic Act. But was lucky to find a copy of the House Bill, which was the basis for this RA.

  1. This was taken from an ariticle from http://www.wowbatnagas.com:

    Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita made the clarification after the Palace issued conflicting statements about the Iglesia Ni Cristo holiday. One statement said July 27 would be a “non-working” holiday while another one said it would be a “working” holiday.

    With this, the Palace clarified that INC day which will be on July 27, will be a non working holiday. The said date is the founding anniversarry of Iglesia Ni Cristo.

    Arroyo signed Republic Act 9645 into law on June 12, 2009. The law designates July 27 as a special non-working holiday in recognition of the founding anniversary of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) in the Philippines and its role in spiritual and moral formation of its followers. The declaration also coincides with the organization’s 95th founding anniversary this year.

    Also, happening on the same day will be the President’s State of the Nation Address (SONA)
