The Malacañang has declared that December 26 is a special non-working day. The decision was made to give Filipinos further time to spend with their families during the holiday season. Furthermore, the declaration came from Proclamation No. 425, which was signed by Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin on December 22, 2023.
