May 7 is a special non-working holiday in Angeles City in celebration of the Jose Abad Santos Day.
Used to be that Jose Abad Santos Day only covers the Province of Pampanga and Angeles City, being classified as a highly urbanized city, is no longer under included under the jurisdiction of the Pampanga government.
But by virtue of the Republic Act No. 8815 which was passed in August 2000, Angeles City was also included in the commemoration of the Jose Abad Santos Day.
Here is an excerpt of R.A. 8815 posted in the official Facebook page of Angeles City Information Office.
