Philippine holidays and long-weekend schedule for 2011 (Proclamation No. 84)

Hunyo 12 by Claude Tayag (1989 Fiestas Serigraph Series)
Malacanang issued Proclamation No. 84 declaring the regular holidays, special non-working days, and a special school holiday for 2011. I was right about not giving out tentative dates since Malacanang will not follow holiday economics next year.

Too bad most of the holidays next year fall on a Saturday or Sunday. No rest for our labor force next year! Here is the list of holidays and long-weekends of the Republic of the Philippines for 2011:
  • January 1 (Sat) - New Year's Day (three-day long weekend from December 31 to January 2)
  • February 25 (Fri) - EDSA Revolution Anniversary (holiday and three-day long weekend for schools only) 
  • April 9 (Sat) - Araw ng Kagitingan
  • April 21 (Thu) - Holy Thursday
  • April 22 (Fri) - Good Friday (four-day long weekend from April 21 to 24)
  • May 1 (Sun) - Labor Day
  • June 12 (Sun) - Independence Day
  • June 19 (Sun) - 150th Birth Anniversary of Jose Rizal (proposed legislation to declare a working holiday)
  • August 21 (Sun) - Ninoy Aquino Day 
  • August 29 (Mon) - National Heroes Day (four-day long weekend from August 27 to 30)
  • August 30 (Tue) or 31 (Wed) - Eid't Fitr (calculated date for 2011 pending proclamation)
  • October 31 (Mon) - Special Non-Working Holiday
  • November 1 (Tue) - All Saints Day (four-day long weekend from October 29 to November 1)
  • November 7 (Mon) - Eid'l Adha (three-day long weekend from November 5 to 7)
  • November 30 (Wed) - Bonifacio Day
  • December 25 (Sun) - Christmas Day
  • December 30 (Fri) - Rizal Day
  • December 31 (Sat) - Last Day of the Year (three-day long weekend from December 30 to January 1)
