Hear ye! Hear ye!
Plan those vacations now!
President Rodrigo Duterte has just signed Proclamation 269 declaring the holidays for next year.
Please see image below:
From our count, there are a total of eight long weekends, namely:
February 16 (Chinese New Year) – Friday
March 29-30 (Holy Week) – Thursday and Friday
April 9 (Araw ng Kagitingan) – Monday
August 27 (National Hero’s Day) – Monday
November 2 (All Soul’s Day) – Friday
November 30 (Bonifacio Day) – Friday
December 24 (Christmas Eve) – Monday
December 31 (Last Day of the Year) – Monday
The list, like every year, does not take into account the Muslim holidays yet (Eid’l Fitr and Eid’l Adha).
Now to wait for the seat sales again.
