April 8

In the Philippines, Black Saturday or Holy Saturday is a special non-working day. It marks the colour’s role in mourning when Jesus’ body lay in the tomb after his crucifixion on Good Friday and before his resurrection on Easter Sunday. Holy Saturday is the last day of Holy Week.

In the Philippines, there are only two kinds of holidays: regular holidays, and special non-working holidays.

Regular holidays are those that usually have a fixed date, such as New Year’s Day, Independence Day, and Christmas Day.

Special Holidays, on the other hand, are more flexible. Apart from being enacted by Congress, they can also be declared by the President of the Philippines.
