PH Gov't Released List of 2014 Holidays

Date Posted: Oct 3, 2013

 Filipinos can start planning their vacations for 2014 early as President Aquino recently signed the

Proclamation No. 655, which declares the official holidays of the coming year. The List of holidays includes the Chinese New Year (January 31), December 24 and 26.


The Chinese New Year is declared a holiday because it is an important festive event both in China and the Philippines. It is also a recognition of the significant contribution of the Chinese-Filipino community.


The Proclamation states, "The joint celebration is a manifestation of our solidarity with our Chinese-Filipino brethren who have been part of our lives in many respects as a country and as a people; 31 January 2014 may be declared as a special (non-working) day without detriment to public interest."


December 24 and 26 are likewise declared to be special non-working holidays nationwide "to foster closer family ties and enable our countrymen to observe Christmas more meaningfully."


Meanwhile, the holidays for the observance of Eid’l Fitr and Eidul Adha will be declared once the dates for the said events are determined based on the Islamic calendar.
