Four-day long weekend from August 27 to 30, 2011 (National Heroes Day and Eid'l Fitr)

Long-weekends have become scarce with a change in the holiday economics policy in a year when most holidays fall on a Saturday or Sunday. So the upcoming four-day weekend will give holiday-starved Filipinos a welcome respite from work and a chance to travel. National Heroes Day on August 29 (Monday) has previously been declared a non-working holiday as part of Proclamation No. 84. Malacanang is also set to declare August 30 (Tuesday) a non-working holiday to mark the end of Ramadan or Eid'l Fitr. We're just waiting for the official proclamation. In the meantime, here's the list of Philippine holidays and long-weekend schedule for 2011.

    Hi Ivan,

    Visited Ilocos region recently... You are right, most of the Pangasinan churches have been "modernized." Calasiao church is worthy of the NCT tag although it was damaged by the earthquake. Mangatarem has a convent that is still partially old. Just want to report That the Laoag High School fronting Mercury Drug will be demolished soon to give way to another mall. Sigh.. It has that Gabaldon look only grander because it is a bigger school. I hope people of Laoag... Cant they be stopped from demolishing the school..

    is 27 a holiday?

  4. Unfortunately, Aug. 27 is not a holiday. So those with Saturday work will get a shorter weekend
