Note that: "The proclamations declaring national holidays for the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha shall hereafter be issued after the approximate dates of the Islamic holidays have been determined in accordance with the Islamic calendar (Hijra) or the lunar calendar, or upon Islamic astronomical calculations, whichever is possible or convenient To this end, the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) shall inform the Office of the President on which days the holidays shall respectively fall."

Regular holidays = employee gets paid in full even if he/she doesn't report for work. Double pay if employee goes to work.
Special holidays = same rule but instead of double pay, employee is only entitled to 130% of daily equivalent pay

Expect number coding to be suspended during the regular holidays. Special non-working holidays are on a case-to-case basis but historically, number coding has been suspended due to obvious practical reasons.
