Is April 30, 2012 a Holiday?

Some netizens have been asking whether or not Monday, April 30, 2012 is a holiday. Has MalacaƱang moved the May 1 Labor Day holiday to April 30?

The answer is no.

Based on the list of official public holidays in the Philippines in 2012, as outlined in Proclamation No. 295, April 30, 2012 is a normal working day while May 1, 2012, as we all know, is a regular public holiday nationwide.

However, there are four more days to go (as of this posting) and it’s still possible that a last hour announcement will be made, unless MalacaƱang will confirm earlier that the Labor Day holiday will not be moved.
