NEWS: 2015 Philippine Holidays!

You can plan your vacations as early as now as Malacanang issued Proclamation No. 831, s. 2014 declaring the regular holidays, special non-working days, and a special school holiday for 2015.

There will be eight long weekends in 2015 according to the list published by Malacanang, which is based on Proclamation No. 831 signed by President Benigno Aquino July 17.

These include the weekend after January 1 (Thursday), a regular holiday for New Year’s Day, and January 2 (Friday), which was declared a special non-working day.
