Additionally, the palace stated that the upcoming proclamations declaring the national holidays for Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha will only be issued after the approximate dates of said holidays have been determined following the Islamic calendar (Hijira), or the Lunar Calendar, or through the Islamic National Commission. The method used will be based on whichever one is more convenient.

To this end, the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos shall recommend to the Office of the President the actual dates on which these holidays shall respectively fall," states the proclamation.
