Black Nazarene on January 9: List of “No Classes” Schools

Tomorrow, January 9, it will be the Feast of the Black Nazarene. As usual, we will experience heavy traffic and thousands of devotees swarming the Quiapo church just to celebrate the event. I can’t blame them since it’s tradition already, some even die because of the unavoidable stampede or suffocation, but even so they are willing to die for God.

Now there are questions about the “No Classes” of schools near Quiapo. So here’s the answer, there are NO CLASSES on selected schools. It’s obvious that it will be hard for the students to come their way to a place swarmed with incredible number of crowds. Transportation would be terrible on that day, and so the higher ups just declared suspension of classes instead of giving headaches to our parents.
