Every year, I always look forward to the 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 of those long weekends for a family trip if budget permits. Anyway, we still have six remaining long weekends for the second half of 2015. #walangpasok

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 the school has no classes but this coming 2016 “Palace declares Feb 25, 2016 as Special Non-working Holiday for 30th anniversary of EDSA revolution.”
