INC Day isn't a non-working holiday

Our Personnel Department announced that Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) day on July 27 this year is a special working holiday and not a non-working holiday.

Inquirer reported it as non-working holiday on July 7, 2009. The day after, Philippine Star reported it as special working holiday.

Which is which?

Thus, our personnel supervisor called up Malacanang Palace and confirmed that it is a special working holiday.

I hope INC could publish its program for the information of the public, especially the motorists and commuters plying the Commonwealth Avenue.

Iglesia ni Cristo Day, a non-working holiday

I read in the news today that President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo declared the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Day a non-working holiday. It's on July 27; and, being a Monday, it's another long weekend. Yippee!

I think this church is celebrating its 95th founding anniversary. I still remember its 75th anniversary celebration at its central church. I was caught in a monstrous traffic it created along Commonwealth Avenue. It took me more than three hours to get out of that traffic. And, most unfortunately, my gas tank got empty before I reached the next gasoline station. Thus, I always make it a point not to pass Commonwealth Avenue during its anniversary.

I'm glad it's now a non-working holiday.
