PGMA signed 10 holiday vacations for 2009

Date Posted: Jan 9, 2009

Malacañang has finally issued 10 long holidays for 2009 as President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed the Proclamation 1699 last December 24, 2008.



The last 2 week Christmas vacation that President Arroyo signed on has raised complaints from the business sector because they claim that it affected their businesses. However, President Arroyo says that she is implementing holiday economics to boost domestic tourism and that Filipinos can have long vacation with their family after a long year of work.



Regular holidays signed by PGMA are as follows:



April 06 (Monday) - Moved from April 09, Araw ng Kagitingan


April 09-Maundy Thursday


April 10-Good Friday


April 12- Easter Sunday


May 01 (Friday) – Labor Day


June 12 (Friday) – Independence Day


August 31 (Monday) – National Heroes Day


November 30 (Monday) – Bonifacio Day


December 25 (Friday) – Christmas Day


December 30 (Wednesday) - Rizal Day



Other special non working holidays are as follows:



August 21 (Friday) – Ninoy Aquino Day


November 01 (Sunday) – All Saints Day


November 02 (Monday) – All Souls Day


December 24 (Thursday) Additional Non Working day


December 31 (Thursday) – End of the year.



Part of the holiday economics is to transfer the original holiday dates to its nearest date (Monday or Friday) to longer the vacation.
