MANILA, Philippines — October 31, the eve of All Saints’ Day, is not a holiday, Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said Wednesday.

Instead, the Palace is leaving it up to employers to decide whether to allow their employees to go on half-day so that they could prepare for their annual visit

to the cemeteries the following day, Ermita said.

“No, it [October 31] will not be declared a holiday… However, you can recall that it has been a practice, if they [employees] can allow their workers to observe half day to prepare to leave for the province,” he said.
