    This year marks the first time Filipinos will celebrate the said special holiday on weekday.

    In December 2017, President Rodrigo Duterte signed the measure into law.

    The declaration through Republic Act (R.A.) No. 10966 adds another day to the list of holidays the nation has in one year.

    The bill was authored by House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas through House Bill 4661, filed on December 12, 2016.

    For Catholics, December 8 is a holy day of obligation, or a day wherein believers are expected to hear and attend Mass.

    “Filipinos, in particular, profess their devotion to the Blessed Virgin through venerative and celebratory practices pursuant to the Marian dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church… Catholicism plays a significant role in the development of Filipino culture, philosophies, politics, education and social norms. Declaring December 8 as a special non-working holiday will strengthen the established devotion of Filipinos to the Mother of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary,” said Fariñas.

    In 2018 and 2019, December 8 falls on a Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
