If things go our way, we have nine long weekends to look forward to in 2014! And several of them would be at least five days! And if you do the math, you can plan for a 12-day vacation next Christmas!

Malacanang issued Proclamation No. 655, s. 2013 declaring the regular holidays, special non-working days, and a special school holiday for 2014. Instead of just giving you the same list of holidays of the Republic of the Philippines for 2014, this will help you read in between the lines with confirmed long-weekends, expected long-weekends and a possible 12-day vacation with one or two leaves:

  • January 1 (Wed) - New Year's Day (five-day long weekend from December 28 to January 1)
  • January 31 (Fri) - Chinese New Year (three-day long weekend from January 31 to February 2)
