Please note that the dates for Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha are just estimates. Unfortunately, as they are based on the Islamic or lunar calendar, they can’t be confirmed this early. It would be best to wait for official announcements from the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) for these national holidays. But aside from these two, you’re good to go!
