MANILA, Philippines - Malacañang reminded the public on Thursday that November 2, All Souls' Day, has not been declared a holiday.

Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said under Proclamation 831, only November 1 was included as a special nonworking day.

The said proclamation was issued by Malacañang on July 17, 2014 declaring the regular holidays, special nonworking days and special holidays for 2015.

Filipinos, mostly Catholics, flock to cemeteries during All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day to pay respect to their departed loved ones.

This year, November 2 falls on a Monday.

The last time All Souls' Day was declared a holiday was in 2013 when November 2 fell on a Saturday. - Louis Bacani
