Know your Holiday

Every year, I always look forward for list of Philippines holiday and school calendar so I could plan for our long weekend. I want to know if we could plan a travel trip or home renovation on those dates. 

It is really nice to take advantage those long weekends for family trip if budget permits. Anyway, we still have six remaining long weekends for the second half of 2015. #walangpasok 

July 17-19 - EID’L FITR on July 17 (Friday) 
Aug 21-23 - August 21 is Ninoy Aquino Day (Friday). 
Aug 29-31 - August 31 is National Heroes Day (Monday) 
Nov 28-30 - November 30 is Bonifacio Day (Monday) 
Dec 24-27 - December 24 is Christmas Eve (Thursday) and December 25 is Christmas (Friday) 
Dec 30 - Jan 3 - Dec 30 is Rizal Day (Wednesday) and December 31 is New Year’s Eve (Thursday). 

I’ve just learned this yesterday so mark your calendar. Though this is not a long weekend. 



Palace declares November 18 and 19 as Special Non Working Days in NCR for the APEC Summit (Proc 1072). 

For the longest time Feb. 25 is always a working holiday but school has no classes but this coming 2016 “Palace declares Feb 25, 2016 as Special Non working Holiday for 30th anniversary of EDSA revolution.”
