Malacañang has declared August 30, National Heroes' Day, a holiday. The declaration was made after Malacañang reviewed Proclamation 1841 signed by former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo declaring the regular holidays, special (non-working) days and special holidays for schools for the year 2010. Arroyo had previously set the schedule for holidays this year to allow businesses to adjust schedules and promote productivity.

Lacierda said the holidays will be reviewed on a case-to-case basis similar to President Benigno Aquino III's decision declaring August 21 a holiday in observance of Ninoy Aquino Day, instead of August 23 as provided for in Proclamation 1841.

He said the Aquino administration is not trying to repeal the holiday economics law, which requires that most holidays, except those with religious significance, be shifted to the nearest Monday. “That law itself provides for the President to modify or change the holidays. He is empowered to do so, under that law,” the spokesman said.
